Buying advance tickets will save $2 per adult admission ticket and $8 per ride sheet. Advance admission tickets will cost $5 for adults and $1 for children ages 6-12. Adult admission tickets for groups of 40 or more will cost $4.75. An 18-ticket ride sheet will cost $10 in advance.

On top of those savings, with this year’s new Early Bird Special, online ticket buyers can earn up to three free adult admission tickets based on the total purchase amount before convenience fees. “Spending between $40 and $100 earns one free ticket,” said State Fair Manager Wesley Wyatt. “If you spend between $100.01 and $200, you receive two free tickets. Purchases over $200 will get you three free tickets.”
