Calendar of Events
Thanks for visiting our events page!
If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.
CAN YOU HELP?
Many hands make light work. Can you spare an hour or so to help us get the Democratic Party of McHenry County office back into shape? If so, please join us as we sweep, scrub, dust, and polish the office to be ready for the election cycle!
We will have all the cleaning supplies you will need.
Setup should only take an hour or two. We will meet at the Fairgrounds at Building D, right next to the fair office. You can park in the lot immediately in front of the building during setup.
Check to see if the lot in front of Building D is open for vendors at 7:00 pm on Sunday. If it is you can park there instead of the remote visitor lot. Our pop-up booth can be disassembled quickly and loads into a wheeled bag for transport. We'll need to return that and the video display equipment to the Party office in Woodstock. Total time to tear down and transport is about two hours.
We need volunteers to staff our booth during the fair. It's easy work and lots of fun. We have one-day fair passes for for our volunteers who need them, or the Party can reimburse you. If the shifts we have listed don't fit your schedule, just let us know and we can work something out. Thanks!
The County Fair celebrates our local farmers and the foods they produce. Walk through the barns where you can learn about beef, dairy, swine and poultry. Visit the gardens where you can see, learn, and hear from Master Gardeners about growing your own vegetables. Meet some of the farmers who produce your food. Learn about the history of farming in McHenry County. And then, sample some local food. For more information visit the County Fair website.
Join other Democrats interested in running for local office.
