“Our goal every year is to provide the greatest value and best possible customer experience to each and every fairgoer, and what better way to do that than offering 17 days of free headline concerts,” said Cindy Hoye, Executive Director of the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center. “We don’t think you’ll find a better concert value anywhere this summer,” she added.

State Fair tickets are available now at a discounted price of $8 plus transaction fees.

Tickets can also be purchased the Indiana Farmers Coliseum Box Office during regular business hours at the discounted rate. Tickets purchased at the gate are $12.
