It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Or days. Just sayin'.
There are lots of ways to choose your big day at the Indiana State Fair. Maybe you always go on Marching Band Day. Maybe you always go for Farmers Day.
And maybe you choose your days based on what works best for your budget.
Admission to the Indiana State Fair is $12 at the gate this year. And when you've got a family, that can add up very quickly. Especially when you know you'll be spending money on food, maybe hitting the Midway for rides, and possibly paying to park in the infield.
Here are some of the best deals for discounted admission to this year's Indiana State Fair!
- You can pre-buy your tickets NOW. Up until Opening Day (Aug 7), you can pre-buy tickets online for $8 + processing fee ($1 per ticket). $9 instead of $12 is a definite help! You can buy tickets online or at the Indiana State Fair Box Office. You can also save on Midway wristbands by pre-purchasing. Most days, the wristband will be $30. Pre-buy and the wristband is $20 + processing fee ($2 per wristband).
- AUG 7 (Opening Day): College ID Day
Now, my favorite days to enjoy discounts are $2 Tuesdays and Foodie Friday. I'm also a huge fan of Family Day with the Midway wristband special - which becomes an even more awesome deal if you're in a military family.
