In 2011 there is just no reason to pay full price for many things, the State Fair included! Regular admission is $8 per person and kids under 5 are free. This year you can purchase tickets for $7 each at Walmart, CVS, Indiana Farm Bureau offices, The Marten House Hotel, and the Indiana State Fairgrounds Box Office. In my opinion $1 still isn’t a good enough deal because there are soooo many opportunities to save even more than that!
On Monday, August 8th you can get a free admission ticket in the Indianapolis Star. This ticket can only be used on Wednesday, August 10th or Thursday, August 11th.
If you aren’t available either of those days, how about admission for just $2 per person? On Tuesday Aug. 9 and 16, Turkey Hill Dairy has a voucher for you to print for $2 admission www.turkeyhill.com/indianastatefair AND you can find $2 concessions on both days throughout the fair!
If you have a State Employee ID Card, you get in for free on August 11th and if you are Military personnel or a family member you get in free on Thursday, August 18th. Bring your military ID.
On Monday, August 15th borrow the largest vehicle you can because with a voucher from IPL you can bring a carload of up to 10 people and pay only $15. That’s $1.50 each if you can fit 10 people (safely and legally) in your car! www.iplpower.com
Wednesday, August 17th you will get into the fair for $4 each with a voucher from the BMV www.mybmv.com.
Pepsi is offering $6 admission if you bring a Pepsi can to the fair on Sunday, August 21st.
