The Wisconsin State Journal is offering a subscription deal outside the Dane County Fair. Visit their booth between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. at the Rimrock Road and Rusk Street entrances to find out about the specials. The fair is open now through July, 24, 2011.

If you sign up for one of their specials, you will get free admission to the fair.

I called Capital Newspapers and asked for details regarding the subscription specials, but no one was able to provide any information. If you’re interested, you will need to head to the Dane County Fair and check out their booth to find out more.

Madison Consumer reader, Betsy, shared the following regarding the specials:

Also – this is the best time to get a subscription to the WI State Journal. We sign up every year at the fair. It’s the best price you will get from them and they will give you free passes to enter the fair for your family. If you are a current subscriber, you do need to change your package each year. So one year we will get everyday deliver and the next we switch it to just the weekend editions.

If you’ve already checked out the subscription deals, please share them with us in the comments below!
