GRANDSTAND ANNOUNCEMENT: The Miller Lite Grandstand will rock on July 20, 2012 as Buckcherry will take the stage. The L.A.-based band broke onto the national scene in 1999 with their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, produced by Terry Date and Sex Pistol Steve Jones for DreamWorks Records. They scored with such hit Modern Rock singles as "Lit Up," "Check Your Head" and "For The Movies", and quickly ignited a following of passionate fans craving a return of true rock and roll. "Coming on like the Black Crowes by way of AC/DC," Entertainment Weekly raved, "this L.A.-based band is at its best blasting its way through hard-hitting riff rockers." Melody Maker boasted that BUCKCHERRY is "a band who kicks arse, 'cause that's why God gave us shoes", and Q called the debut "a hugely entertaining record", recognizing the "rumpty-tumpty groove of AC/DC and songs which recall such long-forgotten Sunset Strip bands as Junkyard and Little Caesar". The band "establishes itself in adult Beavis & Butthead country", added Mojo. "It's Riffs R Us." Due to scheduling conflicts, the Easton Corbin performance has now been rescheduled for July 19, 2012.

Introduction

The first fair, held in Rosendale, Wisconsin, began with an address at half past one on the first day, September 29, 1852. The event was held for two days.

Dairy cattle, fine, wool, tools and manufactured items were exhibited at the first fair. Household arts and garden vegetables were on display to be judged.

The best stallion received a $4 premium. Working oxen and steers were awarded $3 for being the best in the class. The best sample of butter, not less than 50 lbs., was awarded $5. The best sample sugar, also not less than 50 lbs., was given a $4 premium.

The theme for the fair "Education, Entertainment and Affordable Family Fun" is the creative genius of Mr. Williard Henken, who retired from the Fond du Lac County Agricultural Society in November of 2001. His background as the first Dean of the University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac and his love of the fair are certainly reflected in not only the theme, but also in the many years of service he gave to the fair organization.
