ST. CHARLES – The 152nd Kane County Fair has been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It had been scheduled for July 15-19 at the fairgrounds in St. Charles.

“This was the most difficult, yet most responsible, decision that had to be made," stated Larry Breon, board president, in a news release.

“The Kane County Fair has been a long-time community partner with the support of the Illinois Extension 4-H Development Program, our Kane County farm families, Fantasy Amusements, and all of our vendors, entertainers and exhibitors,” Breon stated. “Our fair success is also attributed to the thousands of individuals, families, and children who attend the Kane County Fair each year as they continue a cherished tradition.”

The Kane County Fairgrounds hosts many other community events throughout the year which are held by a number of other businesses and event promoters, including the Kane County Flea Market, the release stated.

“We look forward to the time when health, safety and normal routines will return to our communities,” Breon stated. “And that we can soon open the Kane County Fairgrounds for the public to enjoy. The Kane County Fair has been an integral part of many people's lives and it will be our greatest joy to bring it back in 2021.”
