About the McHenry County Fair Association

76 Years of Tradition

The McHenry County Fairgrounds, in Woodstock, Illinois, is privately owned and funded by the McHenry County Fair Association, a nonprofit group that consists of 22 Board of Directors and over one hundred members who work hard year round for the success of not only the week long fair in the beginning of August, but for other events that take place throughout the year. The McHenry County Fair originally started in 1854 and closed in 1924. The McHenry County Fair Association reopened on their current property in May of 1949 and has continued holding events on the McHenry County Fairgrounds ever since.
