Rock County 4H Fair could move

Plans are in the works to considering moving the Rock County 4H fair to a site in Evansville. The Fair Board, Rock County Board Agriculture and Extension Committee, and Southern Wisconsin Agricultural Group plan to meet next month. The Southern Wisconsin Agricultural Group has already purchases more than 200 acres of vacant land at Highway 14 and County M in Evansville. The site is much larger than the current, land-locked, 39-acre fair site in Janesville. Many fair board members have publicly wondered how much better the 4H Fair could be with a larger venue. The meeting is set for September 10th.
