ABOUT THE FAIRGROUNDS

The Bureau County Fairgrounds has been the entertainment center of Bureau County for over 160 years. Since 1855 the Bureau County Fair has been the place to enjoy meeting your friends and neighbors, exhibit the best livestock and household items, and make memories with the whole family.

The annual Bureau County Fair is five days during late August. The fairgrounds doesn’t sit idle the rest of the year. You can find all types of events there from gun shows, motorcycle swap meets, flea markets, wedding receptions, livestock and horse shows and musical events. The three large heated exhibit halls are handicap accessible and are suitable for all kinds of events. There are several livestock buildings with indoor show rings and a large outdoor arena for horse shows.

The Bureau County Agricultural Board operates the fairgrounds. The Board is made up of a Life Member from each township in the county. Since some townships don’t have any life members, Associate directors are elected that may be from townships that already have a board member. All members of the fair board work year-round to make the Fair a success. From working in the concession stands to painting buildings or being a show superintendent, the volunteer fair board members work throughout the year to make the fairgrounds the place for you whole family to be entertained. The Fair has seen many changes since 1855 but the end goal is always the same – to create wonderful memories for everyone.

Becoming a Board Member

Each township in Bureau County has one director that is elected from the life members at the annual meeting in October each year. To fill the positions for the townships that do not have representation, there are several Associate Director positions available. To apply for an associate director position you must own a life membership and send a letter of application to the Bureau County Fair, PO Box 238, Princeton, IL 61356 stating why you would like to be part of the Board. These can be presented at any time during the year.

The Bureau County Fairgrounds has been the entertainment center of Bureau County for over 160 years. Since 1855 the Bureau County Fair has been the place to enjoy meeting your friends and neighbors, exhibit the best livestock and household items, and make memories with the whole family.
