Unofficial State Fair Attendance Up By 4 Percent

The numbers are still unofficial, but it appears attendance at this year’s Illinois State Fair topped last year by as much as four-percent.


That would make the 2013 edition the biggest in well over a decade. Fair manager Amy Bliefnick says good weather and a strong Grandstand lineup both get credit for drawing an estimated 961,000 people to the Fairgrounds.


Bliefnick says revenues were also up this year. She anticipates no change in the fair’s $7 admission fee for at least one more year.
