Local Action & Parades

“Action is the antidote to despair,” said Joan Baez. Our local party has a long tradition of voicing our opposition to injustice, corruption and intolerance. In our darkest moments, when all seems lost, we still have the First Amendment.

County Fair setup and teardown

Setup

Setup should only take a few hours. 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.

Teardown

Check to see if the lot in front of Building D is open for vendors at 7:30 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 our storage locker in Lake in the Hills. Total time to tear down and transport is about an hour.

County Fair Booth Staffing

Democratic Party fair boothWe 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.
