Abigail Bralick 2018 Fairest of the Fair

We’re excited to share that Abigail Bralick of Waukesha is our 2018 Fairest of the Fair. Abigail, 19, has been part of the Waukesha County Fair for over 10 years and has participated in the horseless horse project and dog obedience training. She’s also shown animals in the market animal project for the last 8 years, including lambs and steer. During her reign as Fairest, Abigail plans to continue promoting the Fair, which she feels is vital to the community because it brings everyone together. It’s also an opportunity for people to “participate in activities they never thought possible,” she says. Abigail plans to earn her undergraduate degree in Therapeutic Recreation and then earn a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy.

Abigail’s responsibilities as Fairest of the Fair include welcoming Fairgoers to the Fair, interviewing with the media, announcing special events, introducing entertainment, awarding ribbons, and representing Waukesha County in Wisconsin’s Fairest of the Fairs competition in January 2019. The Waukesha County Fair selects its Fairest of the Fair based on personality, appearance, poise, community involvement, and overall knowledge of the Fair. Contestants must live in Waukesha County or participate in a Waukesha County 4-H program. Abigail succeeds Sarah Stock of Mukwonago, our 2017 Fairest of the Fair, and will be awarded a scholarship at the end of her reign.
