Digital Storytelling and Visitor Analytics for City and Cultural Institutions
The Wisconsin State Fair Park is a fairgrounds and exhibition center in West Allis, a suburb west of Milwaukee. It has been the location of the Wisconsin State Fair since 1892. It also features other attractions such as the Milwaukee Mile, the oldest continuously operating motor speedway in the world, and the Pettit National Ice Center, a U.S. Olympic training facility.
In 1891, the Wisconsin Agricultural Society purchased almost 100 acre of farmland from George Stevens, in what was then North Greenfield, to secure a permanent site for the Wisconsin State Fair. The fairgrounds later became the location for Camp Harvey during the Spanish–American War and World Wars I and II.
The NFL's Green Bay Packers played several regular-season home games per year at the park from 1934 through 1951, including the 1939 NFL Championship Game.
The following are the spaces and structures available at the park: * Ag Village * Master Spas Pavilion * Milwaukee Mile * Pettit National Ice Center * RV park * Special Guest Centers * Tommy G. Thompson Youth Center * Wisconsin Exposition Center * Wisconsin Products Pavilion * Parks of Milwaukee
