Summer Fairs: How Many Will Attend? Let the Data Guide You

With the end of summer here, it only means one thing – fairs!  From the rides, animals, concerts, and of course the food, tens of thousands of people experience the fun of county and state fairs each year.  This means countless hours planning the multi-day events to ensure the necessary resources are present to meet the demand of the people.  But just how much parking/food/hand sanitizer is needed?  Directors and managers use historical attendance records to predict the attendance for future fairs.  Voted as one of the best in the country, The Great New York State Fair sees record-breaking attendance year after year.  New attractions consistently help to draw people.  However, attendance can also vary based on weather, including both temperature and precipitation.  The Dane County, WI Fair looked at just how temperature and rain affect fair attendance.  Analyzing various factors such as temperature, precipitation, new attractions, and new foods can help fair directors and managers better plan and prepare for upcoming fairs.
