Fairest of the Fair

Meet the 2022 Barron County  Fairest of the Fair, Brooke Shatley

The Fairest serves as an ambassador and spokesperson for the Barron County Fair. 

Hello everyone, my name is Brooke Shatley and I am your 2022 Barron County Fairest of the Fair. I am 22 years old and graduated from Barron High School in 2018 and am currently attending UW Stout to earn my bachelors degree in Family and Consumer Science. 

Being the Fairest of the Fair has always been a dream of mine when I was growing up. Seeing the past fairest I always thought "wow, I can't wait to do that someday", well here I am. 

The fairest program allows women to represent the Barron County Fair at many different levels. As the fairest you get to travel around the county and participate in parades. Go to our counties and the Wisconsin State Fair to represent your county. In January you go to compete for the Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs title where you meet all the other fairest from the state. 

If you have any questions about applying for the Barron County Fairest of the Fair please feel free to contact me by email at

See you at the Fair!
