World Dairy Expo Staying Put in Madison in 2021
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/02/2021

After considering the option to move to another facility due to Dane County's elevated health restrictions, the World Dairy Expo board of directors has decided keep it's 2021 show at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison. WDE Board President Bill Hageman announced the news on Thursday after county officials offered the facility rent-free for the next two years as a way to make up for financial losses brought on by the cancellation of last year's event.

"The clarity that Expo's leaders sought from Dane County officials regarding the path forward for responsibly and safely hosting World Dairy Expo 2021 at the Alliant Energy Center has come to fruition," Hageman said. "We are grateful for the patience and commitment to World Dairy Expo exhibited by our stakeholders and the dairy community throughout this process. Expo is excited for Madison to once again be the place where the global dairy industry meets."

In March, Dane County offered World Dairy Expo a ten year contract extension to keep the event at the Alliant Energy Center through 2030, which included hosting the first two expositions at no cost. The WDE board has since approved that offer.

Hageman says the 54th edition of the event is now scheduled for September 28 to October 2, 2021.

Meanwhile, the grounds will also be opened to the Wisconsin FFA Association in July for its annual convention, as well as the Dane County Fair on July 15-18.
