Galena Country Fair 2023

Come out to Galena Country Fair 2023 for a fun weekend of fine arts and crafts, live entertainment, food, drink, raffles, and more! October 7th and 8th, 2023 in Galena’s picturesque Grant Park.

The annual Galena Country Fair is one of Galena’s most popular annual attractions. The event, a Galena tradition for more than forty years, features over 100 curated vendors selling high-quality, handmade items. Offerings include home decor, seasonal items, clothing, toys, jewelry, photography, and much more. Wonderfully unique and original, hand-crafted items you’ll not find elsewhere.

The Fair is not all just shopping, either. This fun-filled weekend includes live music from two different bands, children’s games and activities, a silent auction, and a raffle with more than 25 prizes.

Attendees to the fair will also discover a variety of delicious foods. Both sit down to savor and grab and go items, such as pork chop sandwiches, brats, walking tacos, baked potatoes, frozen custard, fudge, and many other items. Yum!

You’ll also find a selection of domestic and local craft beer, cocktails, and soft drinks. Stop by the Gazebo Wine Garden for a variety of Galena Cellars’ locally crafted wines.

Best of all, proceeds from your donation at the gate, for fair food and drink, the silent auction, and raffle tickets, all go towards a wide-range of local causes. Consequently, you can enjoy yourself to the full, knowing it’s all for a good cause. Now that’s a real win – win!
