From Vernon County Fair Website:

Vernon County Fair celebrated it's 150th fair in 2006 with the Medallion Hunt in August. Three granite blocks were donated by Elegant Stone with the 150th Fair Logo engraved on the face and were hidden in a public servant spot somewhere in Vernon County. Michael Marten Murphey started the Pre-Celebration with a concert on Sunday before the fair started. Other special events held during the 150th was a Fairest of the Fair Reunion, Orion Samuelson, Meyers Farm 10-Horse Pyramid Hitch Presentation and the Cows on Parade.

April 30, 2008 - Ground was broke on a 13,000 square foot commercial building that will replace an existing 7,000 square foot building and two tents that were erected every September at fair time. The new commercial building will also include restrooms and showers. The commercial building was inspired by former board member Bob Fredrick. The building was completed in 2009. On September 19, 2012 a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to remain the new commercial building to the Vernon Memorial Healthcare Expo.

The Crops Building was renamed the Helen Hornby Crops Building in honor of long time advocate for the fair, superintendents, former fair board member and 4-H alumni Helen Hornby.

In January 2011, Vernon Counties Fairest of the Fair Alexis Nickelotti, was named State Fairest of the Fair. This is the second time Vernon Counties Fairest of the Fair has won.

In the summer of 2011, the Senior Building received a new concrete floor and was painted.

Vernon County has much to be proud. Since 1856, all that time, despite wars, drought, snow and rain, the Agricultural Society has never failed to hold an annual event. There has never been any great tragedies (with the possible exception of the 1911 plane mishap, though no one was seriously hurt), attendance continues to grow as the result of long hours and hard work by those who are committed to making the event the highlight of the year - year after year. The Vernon County Fair is now acclaimed as one of the oldest county fairs in Wisconsin.

Who can say what spectacles await us this year as we continue to make history at the best fair in the state.

Come join us and "experience" a truly Great County Fair.
