YES! Beginning this year, we will be able to take cards for payment at the gate and our concessions stand by the Pageants Pavilion.

Parking is always FREE with paid admission and conveniently located within the fairgrounds.

This website allows us to publish our official fair schedule and all the details about the fair events and official notices. Our social media feeds contain the latest discussions and “buzz” about the fair. If you want to stay tuned into the very latest information feeds, follow us on Facebook. If you need official rules, entry forms, etc., then you’ll find them on this website when they’re available.

There are numerous ways:

  • Visit our NEW information booth located near the Pageants Pavilion.
  • Visit the main concessions stand next to the pageants pavilion.
  • Reach us via social media. Just send a direct message to us via Facebook.
  • See any gate agent at an entrance.
  • Find a fair board member at many of the events going on at the fair. Look for someone in a Fair Board Member t-shirt.
  • If your concern is safety-related, security or medical, see any public safety official (police, fire, EMS). We have a high-profile public safety presence at the fair at all times.

No. We do not offer any advance ticket sales.

Any offers you find on the Internet or “I bought a ticket I can’t use and want to sell it” are all SCAMS! Every year there are a few of these scams on the Internet. Don’t fall for it. Report any such offers as fraudulent on the platform where they are offered for sale.

We’re always looking for people willing to help plan and execute the fair! The one thing all the board members have in common is a love of the fair. Often, members have specific venues that are their areas of focus but we all want the fair to be the best it can be. We plan all year for just six days in the heart of summer. It’s a lot of fun but also a lot of work. If you think this might interest you, come to one of our meetings or reach out to any fair board member. If you don’t know a fair board member, contact someone via the About Us page. By the way, we are all volunteers. Our by-laws prevent paying our members for anything so people that do business with the fair can’t be board members.

Yes. Your paid admission is good for that day. You must have proof that you have paid for admission to be re-admitted. See a gate agent for details.

No. Only service animals and animals being exhibited in fair venues and events are allowed.

The fair board doesn’t have an ATM. Sometimes the carnival has one but this is beyond our control. For 2023, you can pay at the gate or at our Main Concessions stand with a credit or debit card.

There are no refunds on gate admission, including refunds due to weather. In the event of inclement weather, rides will re-open as soon as it is safe to do so. Motorsports events will continue when and if possible.

No. Outside food and drinks are prohibited. Also bottles and containers made of glass are also prohibited because of the hazards they pose if broken.

Note that alcohol possession or consumption at the fairgrounds is prohibited by governmental regulation. Anyone possessing, consuming or under the influence of alcoholic beverages will be asked to leave and/or reported to law enforcement.
