2012 State Fair was 15-Percent Bigger Than Last Year


Illinois State Fair attendance numbers confirm what most people at the fair already knew, there were a lot more people there this year.

 

Total attendance hit 844,000 over the 10-day run of the fair, an increase of around 15-percent over 2011.

 

The increase came despite a price increase that pushed the cost of an adult admission to seven dollars.

 

Great weather almost every day of the fair helped, but so did a popular Grandstand lineup.

 

Country was the big draw this year, the three biggest shows were Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Brantley Gilbert.
