Despite increased attendance, DuPage officials to consider moving county fair
Although this year's DuPage County Fair saw increased attendance and will likely be profitable for the second year in a row, county officials are considering changing the location of the fairgrounds.
"Their lease goes through 2020, so we're going to have some discussions about what's the best use of that property in the future," said County Board member Grant Eckhoff. "It's a small area now for a county fair and it is sort of shoehorned in there."
Eckhoff is a member of the County Fair and Exposition Authority, which approves and manages money from the Fair and Exposition Fund. He said a task force will be created to examine the best use of the land where the fair is currently held.
