Williamson County Fair
The grandstand events still thrill young and old alike and the Saturday Championship Demo Derby is always sold out long before the first car takes to the track. Local residents bring their arts and crafts for cash prizes and of course bragging rights with the ribbons. Horsemen have enjoyed harness races on the same track for over a hundred years and on the east end of the grounds Western, Gaited and Speed horse shows are well attended.
Welcome to the oldest, continuous running Fair in Illinois!
For 2023, the Fair will be hosted in the month of October! Little Egypt Shows will run the carnival from September 30th – October 8th. Along with the carnival, enjoy pumpkin carving, pumpkin throwing, pumpkin painting, hay-bale painting, contests, and more!
