The Illinois State Fair is scheduled to make its comeback in 2021.

In 2020, the fair, like many other events, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic - but the fair is now set to run in 2021 from Thursday, August 12, through Sunday, August 22.

On the opening day of the fair, gates will open at 7:00 a.m. for a "preview day" that will feature the twilight parade, discounted carnival rides, and a free concert at the Grand Central Stage.

After that, a number of different events and performances are planned each day throughout the fair's schedule.

For tickets and more information on the fair's offerings, visit the Illinois State Fair's website.
