EXPOSITION GARDENS has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Heart of Illinois Fair scheduled for July 14-18.  We were holding out hope that we might still be able to open the gates for some summer family fun.  Unfortunately, it would be unwise and impractical to open trying to meet the Governor's current Restore Illinois guidelines.  Even if the state goes to Phase 4 at the end of June, we would be limited on the number of attendees and would face daunting challenges to meet all safety guidelines.  At this time, we are forced to postpone until a new date can be set later in the year.

.  The annual Heart of Illinois Fair dates for 2019 will be July 16-21, 2019. If you are interested in becoming a Concessionnaire/Vendor at this year's fair, please download the application below.

If you apply and are accepted as a food vendor, you will want to print the Peoria County Health Department Section as there are specific rules that apply to those vendors handling food.  THE TEMPORARY FOOD LICENSES FEE FOR 5 DAYS WILL BE $150.00 AND MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE.  

The Peoria City Fire Department has provided us with their  if you are food vendor please print these rules as they will apply to all food vendors for our 2019 season.  All vendors who sell food and/or merchandise need to read and print the information regarding the payment of Illinois sales tax and HRA city tax.

We also have a link to the floor plan of our Commercial Exhibit Building as well as a Grounds Map. All of these files are Adobe pdf files that you can download and print.  Both maps are subject to change.
