What we do...
Our goal at Francis Field has always been to keep
this unique historic "green space" preserved for the youth of Will County and their families.
The field is perfect for community and family use.
We always strive to support not-for-profit groups
and try to make the field house and fairgrounds
available for them whenever possible.
Francis Field Youth Foundation takes pride in awarding
college scholarships to deserving youth that have had some connection to our unique facility. (go to the 'Event Downloads and Information' page to get more info about eligibility and to download an application.)
The agricultural roots of Will County are still alive here at
Francis Field. Many horse shows, dog training classes, rabbit shows and 4-H events are held in the riding arena, barns and field house.
Many clubs also utilize our facility for football, cheer-leading,
and dance classes.
We have various educational programs and agriculture exhibitions open to the public at all times of the year .
