Manitowoc County Fair
Inaugural Woman’s Day Event
There’s something new to the Manitowoc County Fair, the Inaugural Woman’s Day Event.
We’re celebrating today’s woman with motivation, information, and entertainment on Saturday, August 28, in the Ice Center on the fair grounds.
The first 200 women ages 18 and up will receive a free gift bag, and door prizes will be given through out the event, and it is all free!
Our two Masters of Ceremonies, Manitowoc County Supervisor and Chair Jim Brey, and the City of Manitowoc Mayor Justin Nickels will lead you into an event covering women’s issues with guest speakers.
Liysa Callsen- comedian, realtor, bicultural, bilingual, developed transformational ways of communicating for those who want to be heard.
Alexandria Palzewicz- Upper Peninsula Local Food Coordinator for Taste the Local Difference Magazine, Michigans Local Food Marketing Agency will speak on how food got to your plate and who got it there.

And there’s more! The doors will open at 9am to the Ice Center, but before you get a comfortable seat and your free gift bag, take an opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award on the Manitowoc County Fair Quilt Block Contest. A Patch Lakeshore Quilters Guild will have the blocks on display, and these blocks will be made into a quilt, the theme “Stars and Stripes and Fair Delights”. The quilt will be raffled off at next year’s event with proceeds going to charity. Winners and awards will be announced at the end of the program.
Look inside your free gift bag for your entry for door prizes, but you must be present to win.
Once again, the Inaugural Woman’s Day Event at the Manitowoc County Fair, August 28. Doors open at 9am, program starts at 10am in the Ice Center on the fair grounds. This event is included with your admission to the fair!
