    Friday, July 29–Sunday, July 31 | DuPage County Fair



    As one of the largest industries in Illinois, agriculture was the foundation for what is known today as the DuPage County Fair. Over 180 years ago when local farmers felt it was important to bring the community together, they decided to take turns hosting a Fair.

    The gatherings promoted agriculture and farming and included livestock judging; judging of produce, flowers, grains and baked goods; exhibits of new farming equipment and various contests for the entire community to enjoy.

    The Fair moved to its permanent home in 1955. We are proud to honor the legacy of our agricultural roots at the annual DuPage County Fair held at the DuPage Events Center and Fairgrounds located at 2015 Manchester Road in Wheaton, Illinois.

    There is something for everyone at the Fair. Plenty of entertainment, animals, food, exhibits and carnival rides. Fun for all ages.
