Progress – September 26, 2018

The Illinois Department of Agriculture and Illinois State Fair thank the Illinois Fairgrounds Foundation for repairs and improvements being made on the state fairgrounds in Springfield. Since its inception in August 2016, the Fairgrounds Foundation has been committed to revitalizing the fairgrounds in Springfield and Du Quoin. We’re already seeing the rewards of that commitment, repairing and restoring fairgrounds properties to benefit future generations who will use the Illinois State Fairgrounds.
