Bucks and Prairie Farms to Continue Milk House Tradition at this Summer's Wisconsin State Fair
Of all the certainties in life, perhaps none is more enjoyable than a cup of delicious milk being available for just 25 cents at the Wisconsin State Fair. The Milwaukee Bucks and Prairie Farms are pleased to announce that the State Fair staple will be back for a 27th summer at the Milwaukee Bucks Milk House presented by Prairie Farms Dairy.
“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Prairie Farms and once again offer fairgoers an unbeatable deal,” Bucks Senior Vice President of Business Development Matt Pazaras said. “The Bucks Milk House is one of the fair’s great traditions, and we look forward to welcoming thousands of thirsty Wisconsinites in the coming weeks.”
The Milwaukee Bucks Milk House presented by Prairie Farms 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 25-cent flavored milk are sold annually as fairgoers quench their thirst with the Dairy State’s refreshing, healthy, delicious drink. This year’s milk house will feature five of Prairie Farm’s tasty flavors: Chocolate Cream Pie, Orange Creamsicle, Banana Cream, Strawberries and Cream, and Creamy Root Beer.
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 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 updated regularly below, on www.bucks.com/StateFair.
The adjacent Bucks barn will also provide complete information on the upcoming season as well as a selection of team and milk house adult and youth merchandise. Bucks ticket representatives will be on hand to offer ticket packages for the soon-to-be-released 2015-16 schedule.
