In Winnebago County, the County Fair is run by the Fair Association (WCFA), an independently operated non-profit association made up of Winnebago County residents who VOLUNTEER their time throughout the year to plan, organize, fund-raise and coordinate all aspects of the County Fair.

A Board of Directors for the Association is elected annually; this group of 19 volunteers meet monthly (see schedule below), are the primary decision making group for the Fair and carry out all Fair Business throughout the year.

Directors serve a 3 year term and are elected at the Association’s Annual Meeting.
Directors must be:

  • Association Member (purchased membership/week-long fair pass)
  • Current resident of Winnebago County
  • At least 18 years old
