Harness Racing With Wagering

Illinois’ Fastest County Fair Track Hosts Pari-mutuel Wagering for Two Days

The 2015 Brown County Fair will have TWO big days of Harness Racing again this year, Saturday, August 8 @ 2pm and Sunday, August 9 @ 2pm. Through the cooperation of the Illinois Department of Agriculture, Balmoral and Maywood Parks in Chicago and the Illinois Racing Board, the Brown County Fair will again offer pari-mutuel wagering. The Brown County Fair continues to be the only Illinois county fair offering pari-mutuel wagering.

Chosen a few years ago as one of the Nation’s “Blue Ribbon Fairs” for its first class harness racing, the Brown County Fair will continue its unrivaled tradition in 2015.
