Lodi’s Fairest of the Fair is our fair ambassador. During a one-year reign, the fairest will promote our fair through speaking engagements and public events within and in the surrounding communities of Lodi.  Through the fairest program, participants will learn about the history of our fair, how it is run, and each department, special attractions and share their knowledge with all visitors
of all ages; as well as, gain experience in interviewing, media training, public speaking, and community service. Each fairest is awarded
a fair scholarship.  Each year the retiring fairest will share her year-long experience with the crowd and sell her pie at the Celebrity Pie Auction.


In January, the annual Wisconsin Association of Fairs convention is held and the fairest will go on to compete for the Wisconsin Fairest of the Fair title, which includes a year-long paid position visiting and promoting fairs in Wisconsin.  The Wisconsin Fairest will serve as a co-host to the especially renowned Wisconsin State Fair held for 10 days in August.


Lodi’s Jr. Fairest of the Fair will be the fairest in training, will shadow the fairest, and assist with events during the fair.  The fairest court may be asked to assist with different events during the fair, as well.

Our 2020-2021 Lodi Fairest of the Fair, Shannon Lamb
