St. Croix County Fairgrounds

The Friends of the St. Croix County Fairgrounds was founded in 2008 as a non-profit fund raising corporation with 501C3 tax status.

The primary purpose of Friends of the St. Croix County Fairgrounds is to support and encourage the development of interest and participation in agriculture and our agricultural heritage, community service and development of leadership skills, especially by youth of St. Croix County. This includes supporting the educational purposes of 4-H, FFA, other community youth organizations, senior citizens and HCE by providing support for the development/renovation of the St. Croix County Fairgrounds and its facilities. This will be done by provision of grants for facility and program development.

Progress to date:

  • Development of the Renovations for Generations Raffle and the May Fair Event & Sale as signature fund raising events
