Wisconsin State Fair executives have announced a partnership with Bank Mutual Corporation for the 2013 fair. Bank Mutual will serve as the title sponsor of the Bank Mutual Amphitheater, which is the biggest free entertainment spot on fair grounds.
“As one of the largest and oldest banking institutions in the state of Wisconsin, we couldn’t think of a better way to support the community than becoming a Grand Champion Sponsor at State Fair,” said David Baumgarten, president of Bank Mutual. “It’s truly the perfect fit for us. The Bank Mutual Amphitheater will host many great acts this year, and we are happy to provide our customers and all fairgoers entertainment throughout the fair.”
Bank Mutual will also sell $5 Wisconsin State Fair tickets during a special “Fair Deals” promotion from May 1 through June 30. Tickets will be available at each of its 76 offices in Wisconsin along with its one office in Minnesota.
In addition to announcing their partnership, the state fair and Bank Mutual announced a number of headliners to take the stage this year. Performers include Sam Llana, formerly of the BoDeans; Here Come The Mummies; and Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone.
“The Wisconsin State Fair has a long tradition of providing great entertainment while keeping prices affordable,” said Rick Frenette, chief executive officer of Wisconsin State Fair Park. “We are excited to partner with Bank Mutual, a company that also prides itself on its history of serving the people of Wisconsin. The partnership allows us to continue the tradition of providing top-notch free entertainment at the Bank Mutual Amphitheater for all of our guests to enjoy.”
The 2013 state fair, presented by U.S. Cellular, is scheduled to run Aug. 1 through Aug. 11. For more information about the fair, visit www.wistatefair.com.
