The day includes a ceremony featuring brief comments from dignitaries including the Illinois State Fair manager and the leadership of the Illinois Association of Park Districts.
The date of the event is Saturday, August 19th. During the second Saturday, more than 114,000 fairgoers, as well as more than 500 representatives from Illinois park districts, forest preserves, conservation and recreation agencies attend the fair.
