The DuPage County Fair

July 28-30, 2023

The DuPage County Fair is one of Wheaton’s highlighted community events. We love seeing all community members come together to enjoy quality time with their neighbors, friends, and family.

Come One, Come All!

As one of the largest industries in Illinois, agriculture was the foundation for what is known today as the DuPage County Fair. Over 180 years ago when local farmers felt it was important to bring the community together, they decided to take turns hosting a Fair. The gatherings promoted agriculture and farming and included livestock judging; judging of produce, flowers, grains and baked goods; exhibits of new farming equipment and various contests for the entire community to enjoy. The Fair moved to its permanent home in 1955. We are proud to honor the legacy of our agricultural roots at the annual DuPage County Fair held at the DuPage Events Center and Fairgrounds located at 2015 Manchester Road in Wheaton , Illinois.
