Northern Wisconsin Fairground Barn Replacement Project

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wisconsin (WEAU) – On April 9, 2019, the Show Barn / Coliseum (Red Barn) at the North Wisconsin Fairgrounds in Chippewa Falls had to be removed due to structural issues.

After 130 years of service, part of the roof collapsed, making the building unsafe. They now have serious needs to meet.

According to a statement from the Northern Wisconsin Fairgrounds, the century-old pig / sheep barn and two cattle barns are beyond repair and the time has come to replace the animal barns and show arena facilities.

Due to cost savings, utility / storm water excavation and building / environmental codes, the Fair Board proposes to address the entire barn area to maintain animal display for future generations. .

The Council says the facilities are essential for the continuing education of young people in agriculture and for the exhibition needs of animals for dairy and beef cattle and other species (goats, sheep, llamas, alpacas, etc.) . New barn facilities will eliminate current tent rental expenses and increase unfair events with additional income to help operations.

They also say the project will have a huge impact on the economy and tourism in Chippewa Falls and the region.

Council is asking for your financial support for this project which they believe will benefit the community and citizens of all ages across the region.
