Dane County Fair

The Dane County Fair returns to Madison's Alliant Energy Center July 17-21, 2013. The fair offers a range of animal exhibits, carnival rides, live music and entertainment, concessions with a range of foods on a stick, and great people-watching. Feel free to bring friends and family to enjoy the fair too.

Let's meetup at 3 pm. I'll lead the afternoon session. Bill will lead the evening session after dark.

Carnival lights make for cool night photos.

The above photo was taken at last year's Meetup at the DCF.

    Katie.. Your pics were wonderful. I really enjoyed the variety. Were some from your cell phone? I love reflections. I'm going back to the fair next year for sure. I can't handle loud noise, but the excitement helped me tune it out.

      Thanks, Marla. The puddles were with my point and shoot. Glad you had fun!

    A great place for night photography. Katie provided innovative photo ideas. It was good to see so many brave the possible rain to capture some light. I will post photos later.

    I'm going to skip it tonight, the weather looks too ominous for me.

    It's still open so I'm going in.

    I'm going to go. The rain has stopped on the west side. Radar shows a small bit of more coming our way, but it may dissipate before it hits Madison.

    I was planning on getting there at 7:30. What will people be doing if it is raining lightly? Can someone (Bill maybe) post a message if they are not coming because of the weather? I hope it clears up. I would love to learn about this kind of photography.

      I'll post around 7:00 to let everyone know if I'll be there. Forecast is not looking good at this time.

    I'm heading over between 7-7:30. Bring a tripod and a wide angle lens if you have them!

    Looks like the afternoon session is rained out. But the forecast says it should clear up around 5. Good luck for the evening group!

    I'll be there evening only too. (Did anyone confirm the carnival is still going late? Inside stuff closes at 6:30 on Sunday, I think ...)

      Yes, outside stuff runs until 10:30.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
