Jersey County Fair

Don't Miss The 2021 Jersey County Fair!

You'll feel right at home when you head to Jerseyville, Illinois to take part in a summer tradition - the annual Jersey County Fair. Don't miss the parade through the streets of downtown Jerseyville!

Then get ready for a six-day procession of invigorating grandstand entertainment, 4-H shows, carnival rides, games and fair food galore! Children can explore fun rides during all-night carnival rides, and a free petting zoo will offer up-close animal experiences.

Reserve your seat in the grandstand, but make sure you leave time to explore the fairgrounds for some great amusements. Be entertained, learn a little and laugh a lot at the free activities.

Rules and forms, Fair Board information, a gallery of photos from past events, maps and hours and pricing – this is your one-stop-shop for all the information you need to make your visit to the Jersey County Fair an enjoyable one!

Celebrate Jersey County and help make this great county fair even better!


Local farmers and young exhibitors will continue the fair's livestock show tradition. Events include: Rabbit Show, the 4-H Livestock Show and Auction, Sheep Show, Beef Show, Swine Show and Dairy Show.
