DU QUOIN, IL (KFVS) - Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner has proclaimed May 25, 2018 as Du Quoin State Fair Day.

The Du Quoin State Fairgrounds is a beautiful, picturesque gem in southern Illinois," said Governor Bruce Rauner. "To be listed among the architectural greats, such as structures built by Frank Lloyd Wright, is a real honor and distinction for southern Illinois and a great way to celebrate all that is born, built and grown in Illinois."
