Your Free Entry into The Midwest's Largest Organic Food Festival


Published:

Wisconsinites—or anyone unafraid to cross the border (because you're all about hidden adventures, right?)—the Kickapoo County Fair is this weekend, and we have some free tickets to give away.

Hosted by Organic Valley, this fair is in La Farge, Wisconsin this Saturday, July 30, 2011. (Twin Citians, that's about 3 and 1/2 hours away.) This year's food-packed event (think cooking demonstrations and tastings to advocacy seminars and discussions) features a couple great headliner keynote speakers: Will Allen, a Milwaukee-based food pioneer, and Andrew Zimmern, star of Travel Channel's hit series, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.

Live music (The Kentucky Headliners!), theater, and poetry will also entertain you, so it's not all about the food—but mostly.

We have 10 pairs of tickets to award at random, plus one lucky winner will also receive two tickets for the Beer, Cheese and Chocolate Pairing event. Learn lots more about the fair—and get the full schedule—at kickapoocountryfair.org.

 Winners will be notified tomorrow night, and pick up their tickets at will call at the event.
