Based on recommendations from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and federal guidelines, due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, and Walworth County will be cancelling the Alice Finals events planned for 2020. DATCP has asked if the Dunn County planning committee would consider postponing the Alice in Dairyland Finals and planned events for 2020 through 2021. Walworth County has spent over a year in preparation for this year’s Finals. They would like to give them an opportunity to hold their events next year as their event locations are unable to adjust their 2020 dates at this time.
The 2022 Finals that will name the 75th Alice in Dairyland are still planned to be held in Dane County and Dunn County will now be hosting the 2023 Finals to name the 76th Alice in Dairyland.
Dunn County has been selected as the host site for the 76th Alice in Dairyland Finals in 2023! This is an opportunity to showcase Dunn County’s diverse agri-businesses and beautiful settings
Alice in Dairyland is a one-year, full-time public relations professional employed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (WI DATCP). Each year, Alice in Dairyland travels more than 30,000 miles throughout the state, promoting Wisconsin agriculture to various audiences. Additionally, she conducts hundreds of media interviews, speeches and school presentations.
The Dunn County Alice in Dairyland Committee invites you to participate in this planning effort that will invite Alice to Dunn County throughout 2022 and 2023.
