Monthly at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, Illinois

UPDATE as of August 15th, 2020

The Covid-19 health crisis has had a significant impact on our operations. All Great Midwest Train shows have been cancelled until further notice. We have been forced to do this because of  the state ban on large gatherings. The Great Midwest Train Show is planned to resume about 30 days after the state of Illinois lifts its ban on gatherings of greater than 250 people. At present we have no idea when Illinois will release that restriction. We are hoping it is in 2020 but we have no definite information.

Please continue to visit this web site for the latest information.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

We look forward to seeing you when things return to normal.

Show Hours: 9am to 3pm
Admission: $7 adults, Kids under 12 are FREE

The show is in 5 buildings
