Until 2009, Fisher was a "dry town". Since the fairgrounds is part in the town of Fisher and part in Champaign County jurisdiction, it's always been permissable to bring in coolers through the North gate ONLY. We still have this policy. Any liquor that is brought in to the grounds MUST BE IN A COOLER and on the East side of the track area. Also permissable is in the Uncovered bleachers on the West side of the track. The covered bleachers is off limits.
As always, Champaign County Sheriff's deputies will be on the grounds that will be having jurisdiction. There is a zero tolerance law on underage drinking in the State of Illinois. The deputies have been told to watch for any underage drinking. If you are underage and you make the choice to drink illegally you are putting yourself in a bad situation and could be asked to leave the grounds and be issued a citation.
Thank you for helping us have a safe fair for everyone!
