The Cream Puff 5K benefits the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation, an independent 501c3 non-profit that is dedicated to helping the Fair to grow. We fund capital improvement projects and education and art programs around the park. In the last 12 months, we have supported:
Central Mall - The year brought continued improvements to Central Mall including more than $97,000 for new seating areas with ADA accessible benches. The area continues to be the central hub of the Fair where Fairgoers can relax and meet with friends.
Central Park - Immediately following Harvest Fair 2022, construction crews began dismantling the old fountain area to create more green space in Central Park. The Foundation has pledged $100,000 to fund the installation of a custom water feature on the south end of the park that will be ready for the 2023 Fair.
Ag Education – The Foundation is funding an “Ag Discovery Day” at the park in May 2023 for more than 1,000 elementary school children. The day is designed to give students a better understanding of the agriculture industry in the state.
Thank you for supporting the Foundation! Learn more at www.wsfpfoundation.org.
