MORE ABOUT THE IAAF

The Illinois Association of Agricultural Fairs (IAAF) is an organization of the 104 Illinois County Fairs, the Illinois and DuQuoin State Fairs, and approximately 290 Associate Members. The associates represent entrepreneurs and vendors supporting the fair industry.

 

The IAAF lobbies legislatively for "fair" interests. Its newsletter and convention allow for the interchange and sharing of new and creative "fair ideas." The annual convention held in January also includes a talent contest, a queen Pageant, and a trade show.
