When using a season or exhibitor's ticket to the fairgrounds, be sure it is punched for the day at the ticket booth. Individuals wishing to return the same day will be hand stamped or receive a wristband (different each day) at the ticket booth upon leaving. A stamped hand or correct daily wristband is your only admission back into the fairgrounds. Otherwise, another daily admission of $7 must be paid. This will be strictly enforced.

Because most entries will come in prior to opening day of the fair on Tuesday, Exhibitor’s Tickets must be picked up in the fair office. Tickets will be mailed only to those in departments whose only exhibits are brought in Tuesday through Saturday when an admittance fee to enter the fairgrounds would be charged.
