In 2013 the fair committee erected a tent adjacent to the grand stands with great success. The board approved the permanent installation to be completed before this year's fair which starts early this year on Thursday, July 31.
The safe room is a Federal Emergency Management Partnership with Bayfield County and the State of Wisconsin Emergency Management Division. The room will provide a safe spot for fairgoers and area residents to head in case of severe weather. Board members are pleased with the added safety the facility will bring together with extra bathrooms and water supply.
