The Sandwich Fair in DeKalb County, Illinois is an exciting destination for all ages.

Since the first Fair held here in 1888, the fairgrounds has provided the perfect showplace for agricultural exhibits and commercial venues. The 185 acres of well-manicured park-like settings, the charming buildings, and the friendly atmosphere improve with age.
