To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thank you to all of the patrons, volunteers and sponsors of the 2017 Du Quoin State Fair.
Your continued support ensured yet another great year at the fair where we were able to once again provide a terrific state fair full of family entertainment and fun in southern Illinois while also promoting the importance of the state’s leading industry — agriculture. This would not be possible without the generous support of our many patrons, volunteers and sponsors. Special recognition must be conferred to Pepsi Mid-America and TruBuilt for their generous contributions to this year’s fair.
For nearly the last 100 years, the Du Quoin State Fair has provided families with the opportunity to renew family traditions as well as start new ones. Our dedicated staff works year-round to develop new entertainment options for all fairgoers to enjoy, while maintaining traditional favorites.
Once again, on the behalf of the Illinois Department of Agriculture and the staff of the Du Quoin State Fair — thank you for your support.
Assistant Fair Manager,
Du Quoin State Fair
