The Commercial Building will be open every day of the fair.  The commercial building is air-conditioned and houses tables where local businesses set-up displays and information.  Local politicians running for office in 2010 will also set-up shop in the commercial building.


The main Will County Fair exhibit building, shown below, houses the Fine Arts, Baking, Grain, and Vegetable exhibits.  The building is open daily--closing at 10 pm, I believe--and is a great place to see the best grain, pies, vegetables and home-made preserves Will County has to offer.  There are also several historical categories, such as the oldest book and the oldest Family Bible.  Walking into the Will County Fair exhibit building is like stepping back in time, be sure to check it out!
