    One of the telephone numbers that is listed with the Saline Co Fair is not a fair number any longer. Would it be possible to remove 618-252-1185? We have not been with the fair for 3 years and we are getting up to 15 calls a day. Thank you in advance. Dennis Wilson

      Hi Dennis,

      Our website for Partners magazine only features listing of the fair dates and doesn’t have the phone numbers. I think you would have to contact the Illinois Association of Agricultural Fairs directly at 815-635-1500. I hope this helps!
