#62: The Great Inter-State Fair - Kankakee County Museum

September 26, 2022

The Great Inter-State Fair existed in Kankakee from 1911 to 1932 and took place in what is present day Old Fair Park. At one point, it was almost as large as the Illinois State Fair in Springfield. Jack Klasey of the Kankakee County Museum joins us once again to share the incredible story. 


Upcoming events at the museum:


The Geologic Story of Kankakee - Sat. Oct. 8th - 1pm

Artisan Faire - Sat. Nov. 5th
