Wells Fargo $2 Day

Benefiting Hunger Task Force

Opening Day at the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair

Join Hunger Task Force and Wells Fargo for the return of the Wisconsin State Fair and our signature Opening Day partnership! After a careful year and a unique Donation Drive-Thru event in 2020, this summer will look much like the admission promotion of years’ past. On Thursday, August 5, fairgoers who donate two (2) cans of peaches or pears or make a cash donation at any admission entrance will receive a voucher to purchase $2 admission to the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair.

To accommodate the State Fair’s new operating hours, this year’s promotion will run from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. 

NEW this year, fairgoers also have an opportunity for an entirely contactless experience to support Hunger Task Force. Starting Monday, July 19 and running through Thursday, August 5 at 4:00 p.m., fairgoers can make a donation online in lieu of bringing a food donation on Opening Day. Simply make your donation below to receive a coupon code valid for $2 admission at the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair. The unique code and link to purchase will be sent via email after the donation is completed.

A minimum $10 donation is required per pair of tickets. For example, for a $20 donation, fairgoers can choose to purchase up to four (4) $2 tickets. The maximum number of tickets is five (5) pairs at a minimum $50 donation. Only pairs of tickets are available for each donation increment (single ticket or odd numbers of tickets are not available). The maximum number of tickets is five (5) pairs at a minimum $50 donation. After you finish your ticket purchase, simply bring a mobile device to show admission at the gate on Thursday, August 5. 

Tickets received during the 2020 promotion are valid for admission to the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair as well.

Additionally, while at the fair, head to Central Park to learn about how Hunger Task Force supported Wisconsin agriculture during the COVID-19 pandemic and the many success stories from these special partnerships. This interactive display will include samples from local cheese, cherry and meat producers, photo-ops on Hunger Task Force’s Farm tractor and live music.

The State Fair is a fun time that brings our community together, and a time everyone can join in the fight against hunger – and it’s so easy for you to help. Childhood hunger peaks in the summer. Summer vacation means kids no longer have access to meals at school, which many children rely on for food every day.  We’ll see you Thursday, August 5!

The digital promotion for the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair has ended. If you purchased your ticket online prior to 4 p.m., you may use it on Thursay, Aug. 5 until 5 p.m. only.

Thank you for supporting Hunger Task Force!
