David Wichert, 11, holds his sister Destiny, 4, as they go down the yellow slide at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019. They were with their father, David Wichert, all visiting from Las Vegas.

Wisconsin State Fair is arguably the most kid-friendly of the Milwaukee-area summer festivals — from tons of free stuff for kids to do to affordable food to enjoy to plenty of rides and games.

If you’re planning a trip to State Fair this summer, here’s what you need to know.

Hours, bag policies and stroller rentals

Dates for State Fair this year are Aug. 4-14, and general admission hours are 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Sundays through Wednesdays and 10 a.m.-midnight Thursdays through Saturdays. SpinCity, the midway area with rides and games, opens each day at 11 a.m.; closing times vary. 

At the gates, all bags are subject to be searched and metal detectors will be used. New this year, bag size is limited to 9″ by 10″ by 12″, with an exception made for diaper bags.
