2013 IL State Fair: Tax Revenue Record Set, Best Attendance in a Decade


The 2013 Illinois State Fair was a record-setter on several fronts.

 

The attendance of 961,000 was not an all-time high, but it was the biggest in more than a decade.

 

However, the Fair did generate record sales tax revenues of more than $257,000 from fairgrounds vendors.

 

The state says that translates into more than $4 million worth of sales of corn dogs, lemon shake-ups and other items.

 

Grandstand ticket sales topped $2 million, smashing the previous record of $1.5 million set just a year earlier.
