Information Updates

The health and safety of fair-goers remains our top priority and we continue to work closely with the Illinois Department of Public Health. As the Governor has said, large events like the Illinois and Du Quoin State Fairs are unfortunately not likely to happen in the near future. While a final decision has yet to be made regarding our 2020 state fairs, we will continue to evaluate with the Governor and IDPH and keep Illinoisans updated on any new developments.   Should the decision be made to cancel the fair, you will be contacted regarding a refund of your purchase for either a mega pass, admission booklet or parking pass. 

Cancellation Information

Due to the continued health threat of the Covid 19 Virus, Illinois State Fair and Non Fair Events Staff will continue to work remotely, until such time, it has been deemed safe to return to the office.  There are currently no events scheduled on the Fairgrounds through June 30th.  Please continue to check this website for further updates.


Postponed Events 

Grandstand ticket sales, which had been scheduled for Saturday April 25, 2020, has been postponed due to COVID-19 issues.  We hope to have a new ticket sales date to share in the weeks to come.  Please check back, on our website and on our social media pages,  for updates. 


Updated information regarding Fairgrounds events will be posted as it becomes available.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
