State Fair Ticket Prices Go Up $1 For 2011

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’ll cost you a little more to get into the great Minnesota get-together this year.

This year’s general admission prices are $12 for adults, compared to last year when they were $11. Tickets for seniors went up a dollar from 2010 to $10 and kids tickets (ages 5-12) are now $2 bucks more at $10.

Kids under 5 can still attend the fair for free.

Pre-fair discount admission tickets for $9, for all ages, are available from June 6 to Aug. 24 at select locations.

    I understand they want to balance the budget – But give me a break. – Donot they get rent from stalls, vendors, taxes on the merchandise and food. If Minnesotans have complex (go and spend 100’s millions in 10 days) – Why not the government take advantage of them. I wonder how much the Other States Fair charge

    Haven’t been there since they took out the last stock car race on Labor Day about 10 years ago. Won’t go back to the State Fair. I went every year since I was a child to the car race. But instead the fairboard wanted to have 5,000 people attend a boy band concert in the grandstand instead of 20,000 for the car race.

    I would charge for the under 5 group as many people bring kids to the fair and at times the sidewalks are crowded with strollers. I enjoy the fair, but do not enjoy dodging strollers. I wonder how much those crying kids are enjoying the fair. The $11 fee could help keep those away who are up to no good. (Example: Wisconsin State Fair)

      Someone just admit that Republicans are rich.

    It’s bad enough being on a fixed income and retired. This year I am going to avoid the fair and take the ticket money and time I would spent at the supposed “MN Get Together” and go fishing. At least I would have some great fish to take and eat! The Fair is getting too expensive and getting to be the same genre every year. Bring back the races!
