Harness Racing

The most traditional entertainment at the Sandwich Fair

HarnessRacingWe think you will enjoy the exciting harness racing. It is longest running and traditional entertainment at the Sandwich Fair. Almost every premium book from 1900 to 1948 had the schedule and prices for races on the front or back cover. The Division of County Fairs and Horse Racing oversees the state's horse racing programs, which provide monetary incentives to horse owners to encourage the breeding, racing and ownership of quality horses in Illinois. This non-ticketed event is a historic fair favorite.
