The Wisconsin State Fair and the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation today announced they will continue their partnership with Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) through the Kohl’s Cares program. The renewed partnership will result in the third annual Kohl’s Family Value Day on Monday, August 5 for Fairgoers during the 2013 Wisconsin State Fair. ALL Fairgoers will be eligible for discounted Fair admission from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Adults will receive admission for $5 (a 50 percent savings), and youth 11 and under will receive FREE admission (up to a $6 savings).
“Kohl’s is committed to providing great value to our customers every day, and we are proud to help provide that same value to Wisconsin families who attend the Fair on Kohl’s Family Value Day,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Kohl’s Family Value Day has been extremely successful over the last two years and we are looking forward to providing even more families the opportunity to visit the Fair at a deep discount and create lasting memories.”
Additionally, through a generous donation from Kohl’s Cares, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin patients and their families will enjoy a special re-creation of a “Fair Day” at the hospital during the 2013 Fair. Participants will be able to experience elements of the Wisconsin State Fair including activities, Fair performers, a visit from the Fairest of the Fairs and traditional Fair food.
Kohl’s Department Stores and the Kohl’s Cares program support children’s health and educational initiatives in communities nationwide and are a natural fit with the mission of both Wisconsin State Fair and the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation. Wisconsin State Fair strives to offer an affordable, educational and entertaining event for the community and the Foundation aims to provide Wisconsin youth with positive and enriching experiences and supports the endeavors of Wisconsin State Fair Park.
