Meijer Escanaba is one of several businesses that will sponsor this year’s UP State Fair. Their generous $25,000 sponsorship helps ensure that the UP State Fair can deliver Blue Ribbon Fun to all of its fairgoers
Meijer is also offering a 10% UP State Fair admission discount for first responders, healthcare, and grocery store workers, including its team members, when a company-issued name badge is presented on Sunday, August 22. This is not the only instance the Meijer has stepped up to support those who have had a challenging year because of COVID-19.
In November of 2020, Meijer announced that their Simply Give program was on track to provide more than 80 million meals to local food pantries. The Meijer Campaign also replenishes the shelves of over 250 food pantries throughout Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Wisconsin.
The U.P. State Fair is excited to have Meijer offer this discount to front-line workers of the pandemic and is looking forward to providing them with a day full of fair fun.
The U.P. State Fair will start Monday, August 16, through Sunday, August 22. Attendees are guaranteed a full week of action-packed family fun. Fairgoers can expect hilarious free midway acts, an array of vendors, carnival rides provided by Skerbeck Entertainment Group, and big-name grandstand entertainment. That Sunday of the Fair is the Ohio Dukes Stunt Show with UPIR Races followed by a striking firework display, all made possible by amazing sponsors like Meijer.
