The Kane County Fair Returns For Summer Fun

It’s back.

The Kane County Fair is celebrating 152 years of traditional summer family fun and 4-H on Wednesday, July 14 through Sunday, July 18. It’s being billed (and we believe it) as a “big fun-fair, with a small town feel, filled with exciting grandstand events, popular live bands, favorite unlimited carnival rides, 4-H animals and competitions, indoor and outdoor kids events and more.”

The fair starts with a Carnival ONLY day on Wednesday, July 14, from 3pm to 11pm.  It includes free admission to the fairgrounds. $25.00 provides unlimited carnival rides from Fantasy Amusements.

5-B’s Catering will be grilling up chicken and pork chops for delicious barbeque treats, and the cute racing pigs are back. You’ll be able to test your knowledge at the Balster’s Agriculture Game Show and get up close with 4-H animals or at the petting zoo.

  • Thurs., July 15 at 6:30pm – IL State Truck Pulls (grandstand, $10 )
