When is the 2022 Boone County Fair?

In my opinion, fair time is the best time of the summer, so you better mark the dates for the 2022 Boone County Fair on your calendar right now! The dates are; Tuesday, August 9 through Sunday, August 14, 2022 at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere.

The Boone County Fair is often thought of as the best county fair in the Stateline area, and this year's festival will be filled with everything you need in your summer-lovin' life; food, rides, vendors, livestock shows, animals, music, CONCERTS and so much more.

Speaking of concerts...

How Much Are Tickets to the Boone County Fair?

If you know you want to experience fun all week at the Boone County Fair, I highly suggest purchasing a season ticket in advance for $25 ($28 at the gate), but if one day of fair fun is all you need, Tuesday admission is $7, Wednesday - Sunday admission is $8, and children under 10 are always free. Seniors 65+ can get in for free on Thursday. Parking for the fair is also free and midway rides are discounted until 5 pm on Wednesday & Thursday.

When it comes to buying tickets for events in the Grandstand, prices vary depending on the event, BUT we do know that tickets to see Neal McCoy and Jo Dee Messina will be $30 for trackside 'sitting', and $25 for reserved Grandstand seats, or track 'standing'.
