    Democrats Day Brunch at IL State Fair

    8:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.Crown Plaza Springfield, 3000 S. Dirkson Parkway, Springfield, IL 62703

    "Democrats Day" at the Illinois State Fair kicks off with a Democrats Brunch at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Sign up to sit at one of the Democratic Party of DuPage County's tables. The overall event typically hosts 1,500 attendees, including a significant number of elected officials. This brunch is a wonderful opportunity to feel the energy of the Democratic Party in Illinois, hear inspiring speakers, and get to know other Democrats throughout our state.

    To secure your spot, please call DPDC Chairman Bob Peickert at 630-421-2405, ASAP. Tickets are $50 per person. Transportation is the responsibility of each individual attendee.
    You may choose to extend your stay after the brunch. Here are some ideas (not organized by DPDC - up to each individual attendee):

    * Many participants choose to arrive the evening before the brunch. There are a number of additional hotels near by the Crowne Plaza that are available for overnight accommodations.
    * Go to the fair grounds after the brunch. There will be an area at the fair reserved for the Democratic Party, with a few more speakers and another networking opportunity.
    * People that have gone to the fair grounds generally return to the Crowne Plaza between 3:00 & 3:30 PM.
    * Make it a long weekend: Stay an extra day, give yourself more time take in the history of Abraham Lincoln, go the Lincoln Library, the State Capital and other historic locations.
