A modern record of one-million, 130-thousand-175 people went through the gates at State Fair Park this year.

That's the seventh straight year the Wisconsin State Fair attendance has topped one million. More people did attend the 1948 fair, but that event ran 23 days to celebrate Wisconsin's centennial. This year's 11-day even set five daily attendance records and averaged almost 103-thousand fairgoers per day.
