Come to Woodstock, Illinois to enjoy family friendly events hosted by McHenry County Fair Association. We reopened the fairgrounds in 1949 and have been entertaining the community ever since. The County Fair takes place for 5 days every year in the first week of August. If you have an event you would like to hold at our facilities, contact the office for rental information. We have five exhibition buildings, a pavilion, and eight animal barns available.
The McHenry County Fairgrounds is privately owned and funded by the McHenry County Fair Association, a nonprofit group that consists of 22 Board of Directors and over one hundred members who work hard year round for the success of not only the week long fair but for other events that take place throughout the year. The McHenry County Fair and other sponsored activities would not be possible without all of our amazing volunteers and wonderful sponsors. Through their donations and hard work, we are able to continue educational family fun events for our community.
