Welcome to Your Richland County Fair!

The Richland County Fair is held at the Olney City Park Fairgrounds. The fair began in 1856 and continues to be one of the best fairs in southern Illinois.

Upcoming Events **CANCELLED**

It is with heavy hearts, that due to the State health guidelines regarding COVID19, the 2020 Richland County Fair has been cancelled. The Richland County Fair Board's first priority every year is making sure that all participants, attendees, and volunteers are safe and healthy while attending the fair. Based on guidelines set by the State of IL and the CDC, we are unable to safely and financially support the 2020 fair.

The Richland County Fair Association thanks everyone for their past and continued support of making our county fair one of the best in the area. We look forward to planning and seeing everyone at the 2021 Richland County Fair.
