We here at the Deep Fried blog love to save money. We especially love to get free things. (Case in point, we made sure to make it to one of our favorite spots yesterday for a birthday celebration that included free cupcakes…yum!) So each year we want to make sure everyone knows that the best deal at the Fair is through the advance sales program. Admission tickets are discounted, but most importantly, you can save really big money on discounted ride sheets.
Needless to say, we are especially excited about a new promotion that can earn fairgoers free tickets if they spend at least $40. With the Early Bird Special, 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 that are more than $200 will get you three free tickets.”
Admission, ride, grandstand and Dorton Arena concert tickets apply toward the purchase total. The Early Bird Special lasts until Sept. 30, and is good for online sales only.
In case you were wondering, 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. Here’s how that breaks down:
So be an early bird and catch some free tickets!
