I could really go for a giant funnel cake, a lemonade, some nachos, and like ... everything else that's on a fair menu right now. So basically, fair food = life. But this year almost every fair we normally look forward to was cancelled. But hopefully, Summer of 2021 we'll be able to get our fix and make up for the food we missed out on this year.

Stephenson County Fair just announced their 2021 dates. The Stephenson County Fair Facebook page details -

The Stephenson County Fair Association would like to announce the dates for the 2021 Fair as July 27-31. We hope that everyone is doing well in these uncertain times and look forward to (hopefully) seeing everyone next year! Stay positive.

Board President of the fair said that they understand 2021 events might not go as planned. But they want to remain positive and hopeful and I think that's awesome. Why not have something to look forward to next year?

Next year, the fair will have a new carnival which has never been to the area before, with 20 rides and a 65-foot Gondola ride. And of course, the return of fair food. AKA the best food.

Here's to hoping Summer 2021 is the most fun-filled, event-packed summer ever.
