The Veteran’s Appreciation Day at the Stephenson County Fair is an annual event that honors veterans with free admission to the fair and incorporates veteran-focused programming throughout the day. This year, the event will feature a “Where did you serve?” map and a “Post Cards for Veterans” exhibit. Volunteers and the Stephenson County Veterans will host the exhibit, which encourages veterans to record and display where they served on a large map. Fairgoers of all ages can stop by a branded tent and send a personal message to thank active military and veterans for their service.
