A note from Larry Dennewitz, Sandwich Fair President


EMERGENCY INFORMATION (during the fair).

The Sandwich Fair has been voted the #1 Fair in Illinois, and it is easy to understand why 190,000 to 240,000 people gather on the grounds of the Sandwich Fair each year. It is not only enjoyable to participate in the fair events, activities, and excitement, but it is wonderful to simply stroll along the beautiful tree-lined grounds and attractive historic buildings.
