In light of recent news reports surrounding the DuPage County Fairgrounds, the DuPage County Fair Association Board of Directors would like to reassure the families throughout DuPage County that the Fair Will Go On! July 22nd thru the 26th, Mark Your Calendars!
We were recently provided with some reports on the condition of certain buildings and exhibition areas on the grounds and are complying fully with all statutes. We have been given 90 days to fulfill a comprehensive list of repairs throughout the Fairgrounds. We have immediately addressed all issues pertaining to any building exposed to public traffic. Those have been addressed and all Fair operations are currently uninhibited. From a safety standpoint, we felt those were of vital importance.
The remaining repairs are focused on livestock buildings and the grandstand building. We have estimators compiling reports on the anticipated expense and hope to have a complete picture of how to proceed moving forward.
The Fair Board will keep you apprised of any news pertaining to the Future of the 2015 DuPage County Fair and the presence of the Fairgrounds.
