The Big Fresno Fair promises the delectable aroma of fair food, the whirl of carnival rides, and the sounds of live music. The fair begins on October 5th and lasts 12 days through the 16th.

The fair this year will feature a huge selection of food like corn dogs, funnel cakes, corn, barbecue ribs, ice cream, and a lot more! There will be family entertainment as well such as concerts, rides, and other attractions. This year along with the return of live horse racing, museum visits, cattle sales, craft fairs, and well-known bands this year’s event also features an extreme pogo performance of dangerous stunts.

Entrance tickets will start at the price of $8 for children and seniors. Adults must purchase theirs for $12. Unlimited Carnival Ride Wristbands start at $35 on Mondays-Thursdays and increase to $40 from Friday-Sunday. Wristbands give Fairgoers the opportunity to get on as many rides as they want.

There are also many ways to save on these tickets. One way is by going to your local Save Mart or Food Max to save $2 off admission prices and $7 off the Carnival wrist bands. Questions about deals can be answered here.
