Celebrate with us at the

Jersey County Fair

Welcome to the 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.

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