@IndyStateFair - Saving on Admission 2015

It's time to start preparing and planning!!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Step one to planning a great day at the Indiana State Fair is to choose which day you can go!

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 FREE admission for students currently enrolled in college with an active ID. Must present ID at the gate. One valid student ID per person.
  • On Monday, Aug 10, pick up as many copies as you need of the Indianapolis Star for your ticket for free admission on Weds, Aug 12!

  • Finally, Sun, Aug 23 is the last day of the Fair and is also Wild Cherry Pepsi Gospel Day and you can receive a $2 discount of your gate admission by bringing any Pepsi branded can with you.  
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.
