The Walworth County Fairgrounds is an almost 99-acre plot of land located in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, Walworth County, Wisconsin, United States and owned by the Walworth County Agricultural Society.The Walworth County Agricultural Society was founded April 28, 1842. The first annual fair and cattle show of which there is a record was held in the Village of East Troy on October 16, 1850. A total of 35 first premiums, 17 second premiums and 3 third premiums were awarded that year.The first county fair held in Elkhorn was in 1851, in the block southwest of the Elkhorn City Park. In 1853 the fair site was moved to Delavan, but returned to Elkhorn in 1854. In 1855, the first purchase of land, from Colonel Edward Elderkin, was made, consisting of six acres in the Village of Elkhorn. The cost was $100.00 per acre with 10% interest, a high price for the time. The city of Elkhorn donated $300.00 to fence the land, erect pens and sheds, and dig wells. Since 1855 the fair has remained on the same site.
