2017 Jo Daviess County FairSummer is here and that means it is Jo Daviess County Fair time again! Tractor pulls, monster trucks, demolition derbies, carnival games & rides, and so much more! August 3-6, 2017 at the Jo Daviess County Fairgrounds in Warren, IL.

The very first Jo Daviess County Fair was held in 1860, predating the Civil War. 157 years later and it’s still one of the biggest summertime draws to the Galena area. People come from all over the country to enjoy the fun and tradition of our county fair – and you should, too!
