Fairgrounds

Operates the DuPage County Fairgrounds, site of many events, exhibits and shows; including the annual summer DuPage County Fair, a five-day event at the end of July.

The DuPage Event Center and Fairgrounds is “The Place Where Community Gathers”. For the past 68 years a wide variety of events have called us home. From Train Shows, Toy Shows, Civil War Show, Craft Shows, Quilt Shows and many more. We also support many area non-profit events that have a positive impact on our community. We continue to look for new activities to bring to the grounds and welcome you to join us.
