The 2021 Allamakee County Dairy Banquet is scheduled to be held Saturday, June 12 at the Allamakee County Fairgrounds Pavilion in Waukon. The meal will be served from 7-8:30 p.m. with the program starting at 8 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

The event is traditionally held in March each year, but the Allamakee County Dairy Promotion Board decided to wait and see what developed with the COVID-19 pandemic this year, with vaccinations and lower positive case numbers leading to the decision to hold the in-person event in June. The banquet was called off entirely last year as the pandemic reared its head locally just before the event’s scheduled March date.

The annual celebration recognizes the importance of the dairy industry in Allamakee County and the contributions dairy families make to this important industry. Every year, top producers from the county are recognized at the banquet. In addition, several other awards are presented that evening, some of which include the following:

• Outstanding Young Dairy Family Award
• Pioneer Dairyman Award
• Distinguished Dairy Family Award
• Service to Dairy Industry Award
• Golden Butter Knife Award.

Also a highlight of the evening's festivities, the 2021 Allamakee County Dairy Princess will be crowned. Three Allamakee County young ladies - Carly Palmer, Madalyn Palmer and Cheyanne Troendle - are vying for this year’s Dairy Princess crown. Photos and biographies of the candidates appear below.
