McLean County 4-H Fair
Directions to the McLean County Fair
McLean County 4-H Fair is located at the Interstate Center on the west edge of Bloomington-Normal in McLean County, Illinois, the #1 Corn and Soybean producing county in the nation.
The Interstate Center is strategically positioned at the intersection of three major Interstate highways. This is one of only seven such intersections in the United States. Bloomington-Normal is halfway between Chicago and St. Louis and has Indianapolis to the east. It is estimated that over 30 million Americans live within 300 miles of the Interstate Center and approximately 700,000 of those people can drive to the Bloomington-Normal area in an hour or less.
Bloomington-Normal also has a recently expanded airport and Amtrak service to provide quick transportation from anywhere in the United States. All of this makes the Interstate Center a perfect location. For Map Quest, click here.
