N.C. Mountain State Fair offers ways to save on tickets

FLETCHER — The N.C. Mountain State Fair is still a couple of months away, but fairgoers can purchase tickets starting July 15 and take advantage of significant discounts on admission and rides.

“The fair is already one of the best entertainment values in the area, and these discounts make it even more affordable,” said fair manager Matt Buchanan. “By buying in advance, fairgoers can save $2 on admission and 50 percent on ride tickets.”

Advance tickets are $6 for adults 13-64, and $2 for children ages 6-12 and seniors 65 and older. Groups with 30 or more people can purchase advance tickets for $5 per person. Ride tickets are available in advance for $7.50 for a sheet of 12 tickets.

Families looking to save even more money should consider the Family Fun Pack, which has been offered the past two years. The fun pack costs $35 and includes five admission tickets, tickets for four rides and a selection of food coupons that can be used at several fair vendors.

Advance tickets will be available for purchase starting July 15 at the WNC Agricultural Center, WNC Farmers Market and online at Tickets will also be sold starting Aug. 1 at area Ingles stores. Advance tickets are available through Sept. 5.
