Moultrie-Douglas County Fair

On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to present to you the 89th annual Moultrie Douglas County Fair. The fair is the oldest continuous event in Moultrie and Douglas counties and has consistently presented family friendly events at reasonable prices and this year promises to continue that tradition.

Our focus is summed up in our mission statement “to provide educational and life building opportunities to area youth through agricultural related competitions, talent scholarship programs, and community social interaction while showcasing agricultural events and entertainment.”

This year, your Board of Directors have invested heavily in new lighting and seating to enhance your experience while providing a safe environment. The traditions you have come to expect will once again bring smiles to your face and the great fair food will tantalize your taste buds!

Your input is welcome and encouraged. Feel free to contact any board member or superintendent with ideas on how we can improve your experience.

Our fair is still on for July 5-11!!

A Message from our President:

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to update you on the 2020 Moultrie-Douglas County Fair. Currently, the Board of Directors of the Moultrie-Douglas County Fair are planning and preparing for the 90th Annual Fair. It is our opinion and belief, it is too early to make any decisions regarding cancellation or postponement at this time. At this time, the Moultrie-Douglas County Fair is still on for July 5-11, 2020. We are well aware that this could change by mandates issued by the Governor. We will continue to monitor and follow the direction of the local, state, and federal guidelines pertaining to COVID-19.
We have a great week planned! We will kick off the week Sunday with the Domestic Arts, Textiles, baked goods, and Agriculture projects judging; Ag Olympics; and a church worship service. On Monday and Tuesday evenings, our new fair royalty will be crowned, along with two nights of tough swine shows, and the carnival rides. Wednesday, is all about the success of our 4-Hers with the auction. Thursday, is the tractor pull and musical entertainment in the midway. Friday during the day join us for the breeding sheep show. Then that evening it’s all about bringing in the cowboys and cowgirls with our Extreme Rough Stock Rodeo tour. Get ready, we will have bull games and you won't want to miss a good game of bull poker! Saturday we will be having a high-quality market lamb show, as well as, our heifer and steer show. Then, get ready to close our fair with a fantastic concert. We encourage you to stay tuned to the page for the announcement of our concert!
Our county fair is more than a week of fair food, carnival rides, music, and fun. It is an avenue to bring communities together in our two counties. The fair gives our exhibitors a way to show off their hard work and dedication to their livestock projects that they have worked on for months. It is a place to showcase that new recipe, vegetable that you grew, and that art project you completed. Fairs exemplify hope, friendship, hard work, pride, and community.
We are remaining optimistic and hopeful. We look forward to seeing you to celebrate our 90th Annual Fair!
In closing, we will continue to follow all local, state, and federal guidelines as to what happens to the 2020 fair! Please stay tuned to this page for updates. All the Best, Sarah Reedy, President Moultrie-Douglas County Fair

Moultrie-Douglas County Fair Cancelled

Moultrie-Douglas County Fair Exhibitors, Vendors, Supporters, and Friends,

After closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and being in discussions with our local health officials, we are sad to announce that the 2020 Moultrie-Douglas County Fair has been cancelled. The Board of Directors met Monday, June 1, 2020, and made the hard decisions and felt it was in the best interest to keep all fairgoers safe and healthy. With the most recent Restore Illinois phases, it is impossible for the Moultrie-Douglas County Fair to be at Phase 5 by fair week.

We look forward to being back bigger and better than ever in 2021. We will have our 90th Anniversary Celebration at that time. Please mark your calendars for July 11-17, 2021.

All the best,

Sarah Reedy, President
Moultrie-Douglas County Fair
