Despite State Cuts, Wheat Festival To Offer Same Premium Money

Even with the elimination of premium refunding and park rehabilitation made by the State of Illinois, the Okawville Fair and Wheat Festival will be offering the same amount of prize money as in the past at the 2015 Fair to be held on September 18 – 20.

Fair organizers say that they have tremendous support from the community for the fair and will absorb any possible financial shortcomings this year.

The Board of Directors will address the situation for the 2016 fair at a future meeting.
