How YOU and YOUR BUSINESS can support Wisconsin

Have you ever wondered what a cow eats, how a bee makes honey, what corn feels like, or what makes a lawn mower run?

 

A visit to the Ag-Venture tent at the Brown County Fair will allow you to answer these questions and many more as you journey through our many interactive displays and visit with local agriculture companies and agriculture youth.

 

Children and their families will be captivated by this free fair attraction and have so much fun they won't even realize they are learning about Brown County's abundant agriculture.

 

 

The Ag-Venture tent needs YOUR help!

 

You can publically show your support for Wisconsin agriculture by choosing to sponsor one (or more!) of the following in the 2012 Brown County Fair Ag-Venture Tent:

 

Interactive displays (2-6 hours shifts):
Businesses and organizations are encouraged to choose interactive activities, games or hands-on teaching demonstrations that reflect your business to educate fair goers. Make it a company team building event by getting employees invovled as well.

 

Week long booth displays:
Do you have an educational display that could be left up all week in the tent unsupervised? We will be looking for displays to keep fair goers learning even when the tent is unmanned.

 

Event Sponsorship:
Want to help make this event a success even without attending the event or sending a display? Consider making a donation to support agriculture education at the Brown County Fair.
