Carve with some of the best woodcarving instructors anywhere
Amid a setting of massive trees and fresh country air the DeKalb County Fairgrounds is a wonderful venue for our Gathering Of Woodcarvers festival. The fairgrounds are owned & operated by the Sandwich Fair Association, Inc. which has hosted the Sandwich Fair (2nd in size only to the IL State Fair) for 130 years now. That means our event will have the support our guests need to make their visit a most enjoyable one.
There is ample parking on the fairgrounds for your vehicle. Any one with special needs can get a lift from our staff who will be shuttling guests between the parking area and festival buildings. Click the download button for a map of the fairgrounds.
Where to Stay
Camper hookups for water & electric as well as a dump station are available on-site at the Fairgrounds for only $15 per night. There are also a number of hotels in the area. Click the download button for the list.
