County Fair Chicago
September 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - September 9, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Chicagoans will taste the flavor of down home this fall when urban meets rural! County Fair Chicago invites city dwellers and countryfolk to experience Americana with an urban twist as Six Corners Association fixes to blend the farm with city for Portage Park’s newest event.
Stroll the Midway and graze on delicious, locally-made cuisine; pick up new skills from a variety of educational, interactive, maker-focused workshops; take in the sounds of bluegrass, rockabilly, and country jams humming from the “Grandstand” stage; and, lace up your dancing shoes for a traditional barn dance once the sun goes down Saturday night.
No matter your preference – cowboy hats or baseball caps, riding boots or gym shoes – we’re serving up the best of both worlds at County Fair Chicago.
