Both admission and parking sales will be available online via the Fair’s official online ticket seller, Etix, or by calling Etix toll-free at 1.800.514.3849 from 9:00am to 8:00pm Monday through Saturday, and 12:00 noon to 8:00pm on Sunday.

Having both available on Etix, you can now buy your admission and parking in the same transaction!

There will be no cash sales at the Fair’s entrance gates or in parking lots. Self-service kiosks will be available at all gates to purchase admissions. Large signs with QR codes will also be available so patrons can use their phones to link directly to the ticket purchase site. Drivers can pay for parking by credit card in each lot or by EZPass Plus in the Fair’s Orange and Brown lots. EZ Pass Plus is a free add-on to EZ Pass that allows it to be used to pay for parking in addition to highway tolls. Drivers are encouraged to purchase their parking tickets in advance for easier entry into the parking lots.

With fees, the total cost to patrons will be $6.28 per ticket admission, $20.59 for the Frequent Fairgoer* option, and $10.37 for parking per vehicle.

Etix advises that because so many festivals and fairs are operating this year, its call center is taking a very high volume of calls. Customers who are asked to leave their names and phone numbers for a call-back will have their calls returned often within three hours but always within 24 hours.

*The Frequent Fairgoer option is available exclusively online.
