FAIR ADMISSION AND RIDE DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE
Frugal fairgoers looking to save a little on Central Washington State Fair admission or on carnival rides might want to shop early and save.
Discount admission tickets and vouchers for ride wristbands will go on sale Monday, August 16 at the Fair ticket office and at various locations around the Yakima Valley. By purchasing in advance fairgoers can save $1 on general Fair admission and up to $8 on a carnival ride wristband. The wristbands are sold for $25 (Tuesday-Friday) and $30 (Saturday-Monday) during the Fair but in advance of the Fair they sell for $22. A wristband gets a rider on most of the carnival rides as many times as they want for one day.
General admission during the Fair is $12 for adults (ages 13-64) but purchased in advance the GA tickets are $11. Seniors 65+ are $8 in advance, $9 during the Fair. And kids 6-12 years old are $6 in advance, $7 during the Fair. Children 5 and under are free.
All branches of Banner Bank and the Box Office at State Fair Park will be selling Fair admission tickets and carnival wristband vouchers in advance of the Fair.
Carnival wristband vouchers may also be purchased at the following locations: Wray's (Southgate, Chalet Place, Meadowbrook), AM PMs (18th St/Nob Hill, E. Yakima Avenue, N. First St, 40th & Fruitvale), Fiesta Foods (Fair Ave/Nob Hill & Sunnyside) and Big R.
The discounted wristband and general admission tickets will go on sale Monday, August 16 and will be on sale through Thursday, September 23. This year’s Central Washington State Fair runs Friday, September 24th through Sunday, October 3rd in Yakima.
