Illinois State Fairgrounds
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

It seems like they close the fair earlier and earlier each year, and the amount of exhibits and kiosks has dwindled significantly. If you don't come for the carnival, then it almost is not worth going to anymore. The concerts are usually good though. Overall fun if you have a group to go with.

We were vendors for the Illinois State Fair. We travel throughout the US and hit up a lot of fairs and festivals. I have to say this fair had some AMAZING music!! Best we have heard around! The food was great. So many choices other than just the typical fair food. Lots to do and see. HUGE! Would love to go back again!

Stayed here for a few nights while in town. Silent nights rest in our camper, clean area and helpful staff. Very reasonable price when fair isnt going on, 20 a night for veteran's. All hook ups was nice for the price also.

Although excellent customer service is never a priority at a fair, when I attended a grandstand event, the ticket window was insane. I think 6 windows, only 2 open, and at least 100 people snaked through the exhibit building, and it was about 100 degrees. It could've been handled alot better.

Great place to go. So many animals to see. A lot of food stands, one area they have multiple food stands from all over the country so you can try other countries food. They had a cool butter made statue of cows.
