Olde English Faire is yet another unique opportunity for people of all ages to get involved and volunteer at Wildlife Prairie Park. We are seeking volunteers for a variety of tasks involved with Olde English Faire. Volunteers receive free admission to the Faire.

If you have an interest in volunteering at this event, please contact the Park’s Volunteer Coordinator at 309-676-0998 ext. 102¬†or


We are excited to be bringing back the Olde English Faire for a full three days in 2019! This is the 9th year that Wildlife Prairie Park has hosted the event. We project an attendance of 9,500 people, breaking last year’s record of 8,700 guests. Marketing for the faire is done in Peoria, Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, and their surrounding communities. Print, TV, radio and online marketing is done along with simple flyer distribution, social media, email marketing, and geotargetting. All proceeds from this event go back towards supporting the mission of Wildlife Prairie Park. By donating to the Olde English Faire, you are assisting in offsetting event costs which in turn help us to feed our animals, maintain our trails and spread awareness of our mission of conservation, education, and recreation. We have options that range from as small as a $500 up to $10,000

If you have an interest in sponsoring the event, please contact Doug Dillow at 309-676-0998 ext 100 or

Thank you to our 2018 sponsors
