Members of the Polk County Tourism Council and Information Center staff, spent time at the Wisconsin State Fair last week, promoting Polk County.

Tourism Council members, William Johnson and Roxanne White, Frederic, Polk County Information Center Director, Colleen Foxwell, Allan Foxwell, Amery, and Elijah Stuart, were partners in the Wisconsin Department of Tourism booth with Regional Tourism Specialist, David Spiegelberg.

As a partner with the WI Department of Tourism, the time was spent handing out Polk County Guidebooks, and answering questions about all of the great things to do in Polk County. 

This is the third year Polk County has been represented at the Wisconsin State Fair.

Polk County set a record in visitor spending in 2018 at $91.7 million, up 5.06% from 2017.

The Polk County Tourism Council, operating the Polk County Information Center, works year-around to make sure our visitors know all of the opportunities to enjoy while visiting Polk County.
