Fun for the whole family
There’s something for everyone at the Arizona State Fair. First of all, a nod to our state’s important agricultural industry. Competitions for the best cattle, goats, swine, sheep…anything that can’t clean up after itself, abounds in designated buildings. For those who grew up in a rural environment, it’s like coming home.
Besides the midway for thrilling rides and challenging games, other attractions are offered daily. Concerts are back, playing just about nightly at the fair. Performers include Walker Hayes, NE-YO, Brothers Osborne, and Carly Pearce. For concerts, plan on paying at least $25 or more, which includes Fair Admission. Click here for concert lists and prices.
Can’t forget, muddy monster truck shows and competitive rodeos in the grandstand. Click here for more details on entertainment. The price of most entertainment is included with the $15 entrance ticket with the exception of concerts.
