Country Fair

Enjoy your Columbus Day weekend by visiting the Galena Country Fair.

Take in the gorgeous autumn colors along the Galena River while strolling through historic Grant Park as it is transformed for this event.

Visit tents displaying original, handmade crafts and fine arts from over 150 vendors from all over the Midwest, lined along the grass and sidewalks.

Along with finding unique and beautiful treasures, enjoy some delicious fair favorites like funnel cakes, fudge, caramel apples and homemade french fries, while taking in live music, singing and Irish clogging.

Don’t forget to bring the kids! Children of all ages will enjoy face painting, games and activities on the basketball courts in Grant Park.

This two-day celebration will be held Saturday, Oct 10 through Sunday, Oct 11. It will kickoff on Saturday at 8 am with live music beginning at 9:30 am.

The entire county comes together through this event and can be seen as the friendly faces of the volunteers. This event is not only a fun weekend filled with shopping, good food and music, but also an event that supports a great cause. Jo Daviess County Country Fair Charities, Inc., which hosts this event, has donated thousands of dollars to hundreds of local charities.
