About the Event

Over the past ten years, The Local Food Fair has been Farmshed’s largest annual event. We are confident event attendance in 2018 will grow from 800 people to at least 1,500 with the new Saturday date, an exciting larger location at SentryWorld ,and the revamp of the potato dinner with a chef competition. People will still get face time with their favorite local farmers, be introduced to farms and businesses new to the area, and see food and gardening demos strewn throughout the Fair. Children will have a blast in the kid’s center, with lots of hands-on activities to keep them engaged and curious about local food! The Fair’s amazing energy will keep people exploring all the local food resources Central Wisconsin has to offer.
