McHenry County Fair: August 4 – 8

McHenry County FairThe McHenry County Fair is something we look forward to all year. It heralds the beginning of the school year and the coming of fall. Ahh, I can almost smell the crisp, fall air. The thought of fall and the fair makes my mouth start to water as I envision cotton candy, funnel cakes, pies, jams and other delicacies only found at the fair. Of course, my absolute favorite “fair food” is a caramel apple.

The 2010 McHenry County Fair schedule is full of activities from antique tractor parades to  tractor pulls, drill team demonstrations, antiques sales, 4-H shows and talent contests. Live musical performances are scheduled for each day. Check it out, you are sure to find something to watch or participate in.

Fair baskets and pins have become quite collectible. Make sure to contact the fair office early if you are interested in one.

The fair is located at Illinois Route #47 (S Eastwood Dr) and Country Club Road in Woodstock, IL 60098.
