Illinois State Fair
Thursday August 13 2015 - Sunday August 23 2015

Come for the festival fare, stay for the Butter Cow—the fair's unofficial icon and Paula Deen's life-long dream, a life-size cow sculpture made of 500 pounds of butter. Watch tractor pulls, horse races, parades and musical acts. Some events require additional tickets. The music lineup includes Sammy Hagar, Justin Moore, Rascal Flatts and Austin Mahone.
