“We are offering this exceptional ticket opportunity because we want to encourage our fair guests to be able to experience all of the wonderful features the County Fair has to offer,” said Stacy Reavis, Fairgrounds Program Coordinator. “The Golden Ticket allows fair guests access to the Fair all week and exclusive Grandstand Seating at all four major ticketed evening events

The Golden Ticket is $55 and allows the purchaser access to the fair all eight days including admittance to the auto races, bull riding, truck and tractor pull, and the demolition derby. The ticket holder will receive special center grandstand seating for these events.

Reavis said, “The Golden Ticket is a great savings with a value of $69.00 for only $55.00. It is budget friendly.
