La Grange is unique among all cities and towns in the United States, as drivers share Main Street with the railroad passing directly through it. As many as 30 trains traverse the 0.3 miles surrounding the intersection of Main and 1st every day, crawling along at 10 mph. This alone draws many visitors and local onlookers day in and day out, through every season.
This unique feature occurs within La Grange’s historic downtown district, which hosts a wide selection of restaurants, art galleries, and shops, as well as a farmers market open from the middle of May to late October every year. From clothing boutiques as far as the eye can see, and antiques ready for a new home, to arts and crafts, and as many different restaurants as you can imagine, Main Street has it all for residents and visitors.

The fair has been going strong since the darkest days of the Great Depression, when the first fair was held in 1933. Other events held at the fairgrounds include tractor pulls, demolition derbies, community yard sales, and races.
