June Dairy Day Celebration June 4

The Envision Greater Fond du Lac Agri-Business Council, in partnership with National Exchange Bank and Trust, invites the community to the 37th Annual June Dairy Days Celebration on Saturday, June 4. The event will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at National Exchange Bank and Trust, 130 South Main Street in Fond du Lac. This free, community appreciation event is open to the public.

In celebration of Wisconsin’s dairy industry, the event will feature a variety of farm animals, dairy games, prizes, and more. A sampling of Wisconsin’s finest dairy products will be available including several cheese varieties, grilled cheese, butter popcorn, and milk. There will be activities for the whole family.

June Dairy Month is a state-wide celebration of the industry that defines Wisconsin and plays a critical part in our economy as the one and only, America’s Dairyland. What a great way to kick off the month by attending June Dairy Day!
