Hello everyone! As of right now we are making the decision to go ahead and get things kicked off with the BBQ competition for this year. We are hoping to be able to go through with this event solely depending on what is to come with Covid-19 regulations. This year we will be starting off Saturday night since brisket is being added and we will run into Sunday! With that our categories will be brisket, ribs, chicken, and hot/cold side dish. We will have more information to come out in the next couple of days so be sure to watch our page!

We are sad to announce that we are cancelling our BBQ event for this year. We know a lot of you were looking forward to it, but with the pandemic increasing in the area and some of the restrictions there isn't a good way to handle having it. If you have already paid us your entry fee we will be sending your money back to you in the next couple of days. Thank you for all of the support and hope to see you all soon!

Unfortunately the 2020 Jersey County Fair is cancelled for this year. With that we are going to try and re-schedule our BBQ cook off September 25th-26th as of right now depending on what happens with the current pandemic. We are going to try and hold off as long as possible if we do have to cancel, but we are striving to still have something for you all. Keep an eye on our page for more updates.

The fair board deeply regrets to announce that the 2020 Jersey County Fair, slated for July 14-19, was cancelled at tonight’s board meeting. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the safety of our volunteers, exhibitors, and community members being top priority, we believe this to be the best decision for the Fair as well as our surrounding communities.
For our 4H exhibitors who participate in the virtual show, the board is exploring options on how to reward them for their efforts in preparing projects and livestock for this year’s fair.
Also, our 2019-2020 fair queen, Miss Sara Lamer, along with our Little Miss, Mabel Pohlman, have agreed to stay on for the 2020-2021 year. They will continue to represent Jersey County agriculture and our wonderful county throughout the year.
As for our Jersey County Backyard Barbecue and Bunny Brew Hop, they will be combined as one event and are currently planned for the last weekend of September.

This will be the first year in 70 years that the fair can’t be hosted. The last time we cancelled was for World War Two. But we are not discouraged. We plan on coming back for the best fair to date in 2021.

Good morning everyone! Just posting to give everyone an update for this year! We have been added to a group called Summer Fun Fest BBQ Trifecta. There will be a page with more information posted soon. The locations involved will be the Greene County Fair, Jersey County Fair, Freddy's in Greenfield IL, and BBQ by the Lake also in Greenfield IL. The BBQ by the Lake is the last cook-off and that is when the winner of the Trifecta will be announced. This will only be reflected off of your ribs scores. If you don't want to be in the Trifecta, but want to cook at whichever location you are free to do that as well. How is it a trifecta if you have four cook-offs you ask? Good question! We will be dropping your lowest score from one of the events so you will only have three scores added up. Also if for some reason you can't make it to one competition you can make up with attending the other three.

We will be adding Brisket this year to our cook-off as we have mentioned already. For cooks wanting to participate in that we will be handing out ONLY the brisket that evening so you can get started. We have camping sites at $15 if needed. With that being said if you need electric where you will be camping at will you not be close to the cooking area so you will have to go back and forth to check on it. We are also adding Open Meat this year- that is absolutely any meat other than wild game. Everything else will be the same as before, but we will be posting updates occasionally.

I will be posting our flyer and registration forms if you could get those filled out and back to us before July 3rd that would be appreciated. If you have any questions/concerns either message us on here or give us a call/text and we will be happy to help.

Some of our contestants from last year. Hope to see everyone this year!

Hello everyone! I know it has been awhile since we have posted anything, but we have decided on a date for this year being July 11th-July 12th! This year we will be starting off Saturday night since brisket is being added and we will run into Sunday! With that our categories will be brisket, ribs, chicken, open meat, and hot/cold side dish. We will have more information to come out in the next couple of weeks so be sure to watch our page!

07/06/2019

If anyone has questions about the cook off please call Nick Powell 618-946-1639 or Courtney Powell 618-946-0823 not the fair office the ladies in there are checking in livestock and baking goods and such and do not have the answers to your questions. Thank you!

07/02/2019

Hey y’all! We are super excited about Sunday and hope you all are too! Just a few things if you registered late we have to have either a check made out to Jersey County Fair or cash before you can get your meat to start.

Secondly if you are participating in the side dish category we will be giving everyone a box still. If you would like you can bring your own little serving cups to put inside the box for servings just make sure you can get six servings inside of your box.

If you have any questions let us know!

06/22/2019

Just an FYI we are still accepting applications for the cook off. If you plan on coming please let us know so we can still get a head count and if you have any questions please call!

06/05/2019

Attention all! We have a big announcement! For every team that participates in the cook-off that team will receive two gate passes for the whole week of the Jersey County Fair. This only helps to get into the gate not the pit or grandstands. Our overall points champion will also receive four infield/grandstand passes to all events during the Jersey County Fair. That allows you to go to the fair all week without having to pay a dime!
