County fairs are a great summertime tradition and there are none better than our beloved CHAMPAIGN COUNTY FAIR! Celebrate our great CHAMPAIGN/URBANA community and the surrounding area at the fair Thursday, July 21th, through Saturday, July 30th. That’s 10 days filled with family fun and amusement!

 

Head on down to the Champaign County Fairgrounds located at the intersection of Coler Avenue and Fairview Avenue 525 South Randall Road in Urbana for all the festivities. There is something for everyone on the Midway! Dine on some classic festival food. Take a spin on some of the amusement rides or win prizes playing carnival games. Check out all of the amazing local vendors and exhibits. Children will love the Kiddie Land, animal shows, and much more! For additional excitement, head over to the Grandstand to watch several different special events such as the demolition derbies and the 25th Annual Custom Car, Truck and Semi-Truck Show on July 23rd!
