Fair Numbers Grow; Admission Prices Should Stay The Same Next Year


Unofficial numbers show both attendance and revenue were up for this year’s edition of the Illinois State Fair, which ended Sunday.  And that should mean that gate admission prices will stay the same next year. 

 

Although noting that the $7 adult admission price to the Fairgrounds is still below the average ticket price for state fairs around the country, Fair manager Amy Bliefnick says she’s inclined to keep the price the same for next year, and then evaluate it after that. 

 

But Bliefnick says she does prefer incremental increases to keep pace with expenses, rather than holding on for years and then having to institute a big increase all at once.
