Meet Me at the Fair: The Chicago World’s Fairs in DuPage County

Through April 13, 2024 | DuPage County Historical Museum (102 E. Wesley St., Wheaton)

In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, expositions and world fairs worked to celebrate the past while also highlighting visions of the future. Chicago hosted two expositions: The World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 and A Century of Progress World’s Fair in 1933-34. Meet Me at the Fair: The Chicago World’s Fairs in DuPage County looks at the ways in which these two expositions impacted DuPage County residents by exploring the various advancements of art, architecture, social issues, agriculture, and technology that were happening during these points of time.
