2023 Winneshiek County Fair review

The Winneshiek County Fair ran July 11-15, 2023 with Brynn Storhoff reigning as Fair Queen. Fair Princess was Autumn Schmitt. Winneshiek County Distinguished Service honorees for 2023 are Jerry and Beth Einck and Chuck and Darlene Dahl. The Friends of the Fair awards this year were presented to, from left: Ron Franzen, Bruce Hanson and Mark Olson. The late Leon Brown was honored posthumously for his dedication to the Fair in the 1930s and beyond. Mark and Diane Schmitt received the 2023 Winneshiek County 4-H Hall of Fame Award.

The whole of Winneshiek County tips their hat to the local volunteers, law enforcement, sponsors and donors – all providing prizes, hours of elbow grease and more to keep the fair running smoothly.

This year’s fair was jam-packed with activities, featuring everything from local entertainment and baking contests to talent shows, grandstand events, 4-H and FFA displays, livestock shows, midway rides and much more.
