And then there were 32! Following an opening Wisconsin Fair Bracket round that found more than 15,000 total votes being cast, our hand-selected field of 64 Wisconsin State Fair fixtures has now been cut in half. After that thrilling first round that featured a bunch of upsets, a few close calls, and Pat McCurdy getting more votes than anything else, we honestly have no idea how Round 2 is going to pan out. But we’re excited to find out!

As was the case last round, the competitors have been separated into the following regions: Food & Drink, Entertainment, Agriculture & Retail, and Miscellaneous. Round 2 started July 10 and runs through July 16. Subsequent rounds will take place July 17-23, July 24-27, July 28-30, and the Finals will run through 11:59 p.m. on July 31. Vote early and vote as many times as you’d like.
