A City Built By a Community

Progress City USA, located adjacent to Richland Community College in Decatur, IL, is a state of the art open air convention center built in conjunction with numerous local, state and federal partnerships. As a division of Richland Community College, Progress City USA serves both the Greater Decatur community as well as the needs of many regional and national organizations.

The site, which comprises over 300 acres, was designed and built in 305 days as the semi-permanent home to the Farm Progress Show from 2005-2025 as well as various multi-purpose events. Progress City USA remains the finest facility in the nation to host an outdoor show through the continued support of its partners.
