Milwaukee Bucks and Prairie Farms Dairy Continue Milk House Tradition at the Wisconsin State Fair

Sale of flavored milk returns to the State Fair for a 30th summer

In keeping with its longstanding tradition, the Milwaukee Bucks Milk House presented by Prairie Farms Dairy will open on Thursday, Aug. 2, at the Wisconsin State Fair. The State Fair staple – an eight-ounce cup of milk for just 50 cents – returns for a 30th summer and will 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 flavors: Chocolate, Strawberry, Root Beer, Sea Salt Caramel and a new flavor added to this year’s line-up, Green Mint.

The adjacent Bucks Barn will also provide complete information on the upcoming season – the team’s first in the new world-class Fiserv Forum – as well as a selection of Bucks adult and youth merchandise. In addition to the Bucks Barn, the Bucks Pro Shop will be set up inside the Expo Building, featuring a new State Fair headwear collection and a variety of other new full-priced and sale items. Bucks ticket representatives will be present to offer ticket packages and information for the soon-to-be-released 2018-19 schedule.
