The Great Indiana State Fair Returns


July 30-August 22 (CLOSED Mondays & Tuesdays)

The excitement is building as the Greatest 18 Days of Summer returns July 30 – August 22 (CLOSED Mondays and Tuesdays) at the Indiana State Fair! After a challenging 2020, this year’s Fair is thrilled to bring fairgoers back together again with a theme that celebrates the incredible tenacity of the Hoosier Spirit.


The 164th Indiana State Fair is the state’s largest multi-day event celebrating all things Indiana, along with the state’s rich agricultural heritage. Nationally recognized for offering great entertainment, showcasing 4-H youth, interactive agriculture education programs, premier facilities and a variety of unique, fun foods, the Indiana State Fair has been an annual attraction for generations of Hoosiers since 1852.

While fairgoers always enjoy new and exciting features, two of the most popular attractions at the Fair continue to delight guests from year to year: fair food and live entertainment. No fair experience would be complete without visiting some of the more than 140 food stands located throughout the Fairgrounds. And this year’s Free Stage offers daily, free concerts from top performers including The Beach Boys, Indiana’s own Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds, Josh Turner, and many more who represent a wide variety of musical genres each day during the Fair!


One of the best ways to save money at the Fair is to order tickets in advance. Tickets purchased online before 11:59 PM on July 29 are only $10 plus convenience fee, while general admission tickets purchased at the gate during the Fair are $13. Value packs of tickets, including the Family 4-Pack and Super Family 4-Pack, are available online only through July 29 at 11:59 PM. The Family 4-Pack includes 4 tickets and a parking pass for just $40 and the Super Family 4-Pack includes 4 tickets, a parking pass, and 50 Fair Bucks for $90. And don’t forget that children 5 and under get in FREE!
