Outagamie County Fair

The Outagamie County Fair has certainly been eventful! So far, I’ve helped people locate around $7,500, and have had the opportunity meet many new friends in Northeast Wisconsin.

The fair takes place in Seymour, WI, a town with a lot of history. In 1885, Charlie Nagreen invented the modern hamburger at the Outagamie County fair in Seymour by putting a hamburger steak between 2 slices of bread, allowing fairgoers to eat while walking the fairgrounds. Each year Seymour celebrates this momentous event by holding “Burgerfest”. This year (the 23rd year of the festival), Hamburgerfest will be held on August 6th, and will feature a ketchup slide, a parade, a car show, and of course, a hamburger eating contest.

Eating fair food, including hamburgers, has been only one of this week’s enjoyable activities. I’ve also had the opportunity to visit with State Representative Gary Tauchen, Green Bay Packer Hall of Famer David Robinson, and many of the 4-H kids who worked so hard raising animals and making crafts to show at the fair.

If you get a chance, please visit my staff and I in the commercial building at the Outagamie County Fair. We will be here until tomorrow evening at 7 P.M. With over 1 million unclaimed property accounts, it’s likely that you or someone you know will have money owed to them. Stop by and claim it!
