Friends of the DuPage County Fair-
Let's Get Together to Support the Fair!
The Friends of the DuPage County Inc. is a 501c-3 non for profit Corporation whose mission is to raise capital to support:
1. The Preservation and Reservation of the DuPage County Fairgrounds.
2. The efforts of the DuPage County Fair Association in providing the Fair to the
3. The year round operations of the Fairgrounds facilities.
The DuPage County Fair Association has been in existence for 61 years. The current Fairgrounds at 2015 Manchester Rd. Wheaton, IL has been its home since 1955. Most of the buildings and current infrastructures were completed in the first few years. The buildings are all structurally sound, but show some signs of wear and need some updating.
In 2009 the Association began a capital plan on making improvements to the electrical systems. New energy efficient fixtures were added to the barns, and several other buildings, repairs and improvements were made to panels and fixtures. In 2012, with the help of a windshear, major improvements were made to the complete electrical system of the grounds. This year, new windows, doors, plumbing improvements, electrical improvements, painting and more have been completed. Over the past several years an investment of $750,000 plus has been made to the Fairgrounds.
The focus of the improvements is to make the facilities available for a wider range of community uses, and to increase revenues from additional rental use, by transforming the Expo building into an event center.
Please help support our efforts with donations, sponsorship, endowments, or any other type of contribution. We want to keep the 61 year tradition of the County Fair going strong at its home on the Fairgrounds.
