IL State Fair director excited about upcoming fairs
The Illinois State Fair Director says excitement is brewing for the state fairs to happen in a couple of months after the 2020 fairs were cancelled because of the pandemic.
“Just having the fair back – honestly – it seems like it’s been 100 years since we had a fair.”
Kevin Gordon tells Brownfield they expect high attendance and participation in livestock showing. He says there will be a lot of new things. For example, “Our ag footprint over here with the Department of Ag tent. We’re working very, very closely with our marketing team we’re going to go ahead and move our farrowing center over.”
The Illinois State Fair will run August 12th through 22nd in Springfield and the Du Quoin State Fair is August 27th through September 6th.
