The 2012 Wisconsin State Fair starts Thursday, August 2 and runs for 11 days through Sunday, August 12.  There are several opportunities for free or reduced State Fair admission if you plan ahead.

Regular ticket prices for the 2012 Fair are as follows:

  • Adult (12 & over) - $9
  • Seniors (60 & over) & Military/Veterans with ID  - $6
  • Youth (ages 6 - 11) - $5
  • Children (5 & under) - FREE

Parking on the Fair grounds is $10.  Free street parking is available in the neighborhoods surrounding State Fair Park, however it usually isn’t easy to find an open spot.  You can typically find a lawn to park on for $5 or so within a couple blocks of an entrance.  The largest concentration of lawns to park on is in the neighborhood west of the Fair grounds.

Drawing For Free Tickets

If you haven’t entered our daily drawing for free Wisconsin State Fair prize packages, there is still time to do so.  Each State Fair prize package contains a family four-pack of Fair tickets, a three-pack of Cream Puffs, and a Fair Deals Bargain Book. We’re drawing a winner each day for the 10 days preceding the Fair.
