Welcome to the Northern Wisconsin State Fair
"It's A Family Affair"
The Northern Wisconsin State Fair (NWSF), presented by Bank Mutual, is pleased to continue its tradition of providing family entertainment and we are excited to announce Bank Mutual as our partner in presenting the 117th edition of the NWSF. Bank Mutual is a perfect fit as a Wisconsin Hometown bank, which has provided sound financial solutions since 1892. “As one of the largest and oldest banking institutions in the state of Wisconsin, we couldn’t think of a better way to support the community than becoming a title sponsor at the NWSF”. “This event reflects our philosophy of backing initiatives that benefit local individuals, families, and businesses” explained Holly Hedrington, Regional Vice President of Bank Mutual”.
The Northern Wisconsin State Fair, presented by Bank Mutual, is pleased to announce the following Main Stage Acts and family attractions for 2014.
- Main Stage:
Joe Nichols, sponsored by Northwestern Bank, will perform on Wednesday, July 9th @ 8:00pm. Joe Nichols had an awesome performance to a large crowd despite rainy weather in 2011. We look forward to songs from his recently released album "Crickets" and latest Billboard Hot County Songs Chart #1 hit "Sunny and 75". The ascension of "Sunny and 75" marks the 4 time GRAMMY nominee's Fifth number 1 country radio single.
On Thursday night we are excited to feature Brett Eldredge, sponsored by Gordy's County Market. Brett's hit single "Don't Ya" reached the number one spot on the Country Airplay chart this past year. Brett Eldredge is currently touring with Keith Urban & Little Big Town and gaining popularity each week. Don't miss this opportunity to see a fantastic performance by a new artist gaining steam at the fair in Chippewa Falls.
Loverboy, sponsored by Xcel Energy, will be returning to the Northern Wisconsin State Fair Main Stage on Friday evening. Mike Reno and Loverboy continue to put on amazing performances with hits from the 80's so head to the Fair on Friday night and join the fun.
"Here Come the Mummies" will headline Saturday night with special guests “Tonic Sol-fa”. Eddie Mummy, Java, K.W. Tut, Mummy Cass, Spaz, The Pole, Midnight, Mummy Rah, and The Flu have again "pooled" what remains of their hearts, brains and dusty, withered appendages to make Cryptic, their new collection of songs. "Cryptic is sexy, scary, funny, sweet, low-down, hiked-up and basically awesome, baby," According to Java. This unique experience will keep everyone rocking all night long. Tonic Sol-fa (famed A Cappella group) will start at 6:30 to easy your way into a night of horns, drums and showmanship you will never forget.
- Gordy’s Front Porch Stage & Ground Entertainment:
