State Fair Coliseum Closed For 2017
(Springfield, IL) — One of the most recognizable buildings on the Illinois State Fairgrounds is closed until further notice. State officials late last week confirmed the coliseum won’t reopen any time soon, even for the State Fair. Crews are trying to fix several structural deficiencies with the 116-year-old building. The closure has already cost the fairgrounds a horse show, and may cause more troubles at the annual State Fair in August.
