The Rusk County Junior Fair this year is held August 4th-7th at the Rusk County Fairgrounds. The mission of the Rusk County Junior Fair is to provide opportunities for youth who are members of a youth organization to showcase their accomplishments and talents. This allows youth to gain valuable life skills in a safe manner. The fair seeks to provide opportunities in life-long learning in agriculture, agribusiness, natural resources, family living and youth development. Any Rusk County resident can also show at the fair under Open Class. The fair is operated and managed by a fair board and would not be a success without our sponsors and volunteers. For more information on the Rusk County Junior Fair or to learn of ways you can volunteer or sponsor an event, contact the Fair coordinator at the Rusk County UW Extension Office at 715-532-2225. See you at the fair!
