Wisconsin State Fair officials are excited to once again to announce several "Fair Deals" that offer Fairgoers the biggest savings on advance admission, cream puffs and tickets for SpinCity, the new amusement ride and game area at the Fair. In addition to the $5 fair admission, several exciting partnerships offer added benefits for those who plan ahead and purchase early. The 2012 Wisconsin State Fair will take place Thursday, Aug. 2 through Sunday, Aug. 12 at Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis.
Fairgoers can save on admission by purchasing $5 Fair Deal admission tickets that provide a savings of $4 per ticket off the adult gate admission price – a 45% savings. New in 2012, the discounted admission vouchers can be purchased right at the checkout at participating Wisconsin Sentry, Trig's and Festival Foods stores. Festival Foods is a new retail partner in 2012, and admission vouchers can be purchased at all Wisconsin Festival Foods locations. In addition, tickets can also be purchased online at WiStateFair.com (mail order and print-at-home options are available; service fee applies). The $5 Fair Deal adult admission vouchers and tickets are on sale through June 30. Tickets may also be purchased at the Fair Ticket Office at 7722 W. Greenfield Ave. The Ticket Office is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (beginning Tuesday, May 1) as well as Saturday, June 30 from 9 a.m. to 3p.m.
Save on rides
New in 2012, fairgoers who love rides and games can save 50% off the price of individually purchased ride and game tickets for the new SpinCity amusement area at the Fair. For only $25 purchasers will receive a 50 ticket sheet valid for all SpinCity rides and games. SpinCity rides and games will generally require two to five tickets per ride or game. The 50 ticket sheet will only be offered May 1 through June 30 at WiStateFair.com (service fee applies) and the Fair Ticket Office.
The Sweetest Deal is back and better than ever! Cream Puff lovers can purchase a 6-Pack Certificate for only $15 and save $9 off individually purchased cream puffs.
