2015 Sandwich fair

The Sandwich Fair is quaint, old-fashioned fun – a great place to stay connected….

EVENT RESCHEDULING Brett Eldredge has been rescheduled to play at 8 p.m. Friday, September 11. The previous time was 7 p.m. Now it is the same great show; same awesome fair…just a later time. All tickets for this show honored. (The sitter just needs to hang in there for another hour!). Gates open at 7 p.m. and show starts at 8 p.m. so be there (don't be square)! Don't forget your cowboy hat.

The Sandwich Fair (DeKalb County Fair) is the oldest continuing fair in the state of Illinois. See distinctive buildings on beautiful tree-lined grounds, an ever-evolving array of exhibits, commercial displays, agricultural displays, harness races, truck and tractor pulls, carnival rides, food stands, and a variety of other attractions.

The 128th Sandwich Fair hosts the Midwest's largest display of agricultural and home arts exhibits.

Come join the fun!
