Michelle Knapp was named 2017 Kenosha County Fairest of the Fair.

The announcement was made in a ceremony at the fairgrounds Wednesday evening, one of the traditional highlights of the first day of the fair.

Also named to this year’s court were Taylor Matrisch and Abby Diedrich.

The court and fairest selections were made after two rounds of judging, which took place last week and earlier this week. A final session with the judges and contestants took place over dinner Wednesday night.

All three will preside over a number of events and ceremonies during this year’s fair and represent the Kenosha County Fair over the next year.

The crowning was held in the sale and show arena. Turnout for the event was over 100 people in the audience.
