Milwaukee Bucks and Prairie Farms Dairy Continue Milk House Tradition at the Wisconsin State Fair
Best value at the fair returns for a 28th summer, with all proceeds now benefitting the newly-launched Milwaukee Bucks Foundation
The food and beverage options at the Wisconsin State Fair get more outlandish every year, but the simple joy of a refreshing and delicious glass of milk for well under a dollar is a tradition that remains timeless. The Milwaukee Bucks are pleased to announce that the Fair staple will be back for a 28th summer when the Wisconsin State Fair tips off on Thursday, Aug. 4 at the Milwaukee Bucks Milk House presented by Prairie Farms Dairy.
The eight-ounce cups of milk will sell for just 50 cents, making it one of the best values at the fairgrounds this summer, with fairgoers receiving the added benefit of supporting a great cause as all proceeds from the milk house will now go to the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation. Launched earlier this summer, the new foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for youth and families in Wisconsin by focusing on three areas of critical need: youth education; youth health and wellness; and community betterment.
The Milwaukee Bucks Milk House presented by Prairie Farms Dairy will once again be located at Main Street and South Grandstand Avenue, close to its original location from 1989. More than 160,000 cups of delicious Prairie Farms Dairy flavored milk are sold annually as fairgoers quench their thirst with the Dairy State’s healthy and refreshing drink. This year’s Bucks Milk House will feature five of Prairie Farms Dairy’s tasty flavors: Chocolate, Strawberry, Root Beer, Banana Cream and Orange Creamsicle.
Throughout the 11-day State Fair run, the Bucks Milk House will feature visits from team personalities – including Bucks players and entertainers like Bango and the Milwaukee Bucks Dancers. All will be available to interact with fans, sign autographs and take pictures. A complete listing of Bucks personalities who will appear at the milk house will be available in the coming weeks.
The adjacent Bucks barn will also provide complete information on the upcoming season as well as a selection of Bucks and Milk House adult and youth merchandise. Bucks ticket representatives will be present to offer ticket packages and information for the soon-to-be-released 2016-17 schedule.
