The event takes place at the fairground’s Central Park area, where there will be  something for everyone. The CALS Corner, for instance, will feature hands-on activities related to cheese making, pollinators, vegetables, lawn care, leaf cutter ants and – of course – miniature golf through a giant wheel of cheese.

Other highlights include:

  • Try hands-on science activities at more than twenty UW “Exploration Stations”, watch exciting demonstrations and discover something new.
  • Test your athletic skills at UW Badger games and activities, and get your picture taken with UW–Madison’s recent championship trophies like the coveted Paul Bunyan axe.
  • Attend a demonstration with the experts on the art of making cheese. Be sure to get your cheese sample too!
  • Connect with specialists to answer grass and lawn care questions and learn from the experts on a whole cornucopia of fruits and vegetables.
  • Tour the restored and re-engineered Bucky Wagon from the College of Engineering.
  • The Wonders of Physics come alive through an entertaining presentation looking at the properties of motion, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism and light!
  • UW Admissions staff will be on hand to answer questions about UW–Madison, as well as provide chances to win some prizes.
  • Show your Badger pride at our Pep Rally featuring Bucky Badger and the world-famous UW Marching Band.

Don’t forget to bring a donation for the school supplies drive to receive a $4 adult discount voucher.
