Season Pass Holders SAVE

Season Pass

20 Days of Fair Admission for Less Than $2.50 a Day!!

The Season Pass still offers admission every single day Fair is open – the 2023 Fair is one day longer making it a 20 day pass! New this year, admission is sold separately from concerts and tasting fests. Plus, there will be free bleacher seats available for every concert. You may still use your Season Pass to buy reserved Floor and Club seats before the general public – which means early access to the best seats.
