State Fair Park Congratulates Rosenbush

Jackie Rosenbush is Wisconsin’s 2022 Fairest of the Fairs. She’s the first Fairest from Washburn County. She will spend the fair season traveling to Wisconsin’s 75 county, district, and state fairs, and be the official host of the Wisconsin State Fair, Aug. 4-14. 

Wisconsin State Fair Park officials are delighted to introduce Rosenbush, who was selected Wednesday evening at the Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention in Wisconsin Dells. A group of 33 contestants vied for this coveted position — an ambassador for the Wisconsin Association of Fairs.

Each year, the Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs travels throughout the state promoting the educational, agricultural, social, cultural, and commercial opportunities available at Wisconsin’s excellent fairs. It is a position of responsibility to the citizens of Wisconsin, and the winner must possess outstanding communication skills as well as organization, professionalism, and a passion for the fair industry.

Rosenbush will serve a one-year term, and her responsibilities include appearances at fairs and events throughout the state, working with media, and promoting the importance of Wisconsin’s fair and agriculture industries.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jackie as part of the Wisconsin State Fair family,” says Shari Black, interim CEO of Wisconsin State Fair Park. “Jackie exemplifies a deep passion for agriculture education and the fair industry, with a heart for community service. A special congratulations goes to Jackie and all of the talented contestants who vied for the role this year.”

Rosenbush was selected from a field of exceptionally talented young women, and replaces the 2020/2021 Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs, Cayley Vande Berg from the Fond du Lac County Fair. The Fairest of the Fairs is chosen by a panel of three judges representing the fair, marketing, and hospitality industries. This year’s judges were Jennifer Dunn, CVFM, Kim Berens, and Stacie Christel.
