I have entered the fairs creative activities and now it’s time to plan for the 2015 fair. This year the fair runs from August 27ththrough Sept 7th. Don’t wait until August to start planning your trip. Now is the time to pick the day(s) you will be going and pre-order your tickets.
Pre-fair tickets are on sale for $10 at a lot of Cub Foods stores and through the MN State Fair website. Regular priced tickets are $13 for adults (13-64), $11 for seniors (65+), and $11 for kids (5-12), under age 5 is FREE. For our family, for one day at the fair we save $18 by pre-ordering our tickets.
There is a little exception to the pre-fair tickets. Check the dates you are going first. The fair has several discount ticket days. This year they are:
August 27th – kids are only $8
August 31st – kids and seniors are only $8
September 1st – Military appreciation $8 across the board for active military, retired military and veterans when they purchase a ticket at the gate and present valid documentation of military service.
September 2nd – kids and seniors are $8 Discount applies to public library cardholders who purchase a ticket at the gate and present a valid library card. (One discount per card).
September 3rd – seniors $8
September 7th – kids are only $8
One thing to not as a change from years past. They no longer accept the pre-fair tickets for parking. You will now need to pay the full parking price if using a state fair lot.
I’ll be posting more State Fair Updates over the next few months come back to check them out.
