The Sandwich Fair in DeKalb County, Illinois is an exciting destination for all ages.
Since the first Fair held here in 1888, the fairgrounds has provided the perfect showplace for agricultural exhibits and commercial venues. The 185 acres of well-manicured park-like settings, the charming buildings, and the friendly atmosphere improve with age.
Every year in September, starting on the Wednesday after Labor Day, the fairgrounds comes alive for five days, with carnival rides, mouth-watering fair foods, and vendors from all over the Midwest. Exhibitors from near and far show the fruits of their labors. Free entertainment and attractions—along with nationally acclaimed acts—prove to be thrilling for all ages.
Some of our classic buildings date back to the 1800s. Stop by the History Museum to learn more about The Sandwich Fair heritage and charm.
We like to say we are A Tradition of Excellence, having provided great family entertainment for many generations. Whether you are attending for the first time, or are one of the regulars, The Sandwich Fair has something for everyone, so “Come Join the Fun”, and make your own memorable moments that will last a lifetime.
