75 Years of Family & Farm Traditions
We’re celebrating a birthday: 75 years of the McHenry County Fair at the Country Club site!

Although farmers exhibited animals in downtown Woodstock as far back as 1854, "The Fair” was put on hold for the 30 year period between 1919 and 1949, returning to the present site for animal shows in 1948 and a full fair in 1949.

Today the fair, in cooperation with Club Town, has grown to nearly 100 acres of animals, food, fun and entertainment for the entire family. The 2023 fair will be extra special and will run Tuesday thru Sunday, August 1-6. Please save the dates and stay tuned to this site as we add new events and attractions for the 2023 fair.

Fair Opens Tuesday, August 1 at noon-9 pm
Wednesday - Thursday, 7 am to 9 pm
Friday - Saturday at 7 am to 11 pm
