Do You Accept Checks or Credit Cards for Ticket Purchases?

At the gate only cash is accepted.  If purchasing your pre-fair discount tickets at the Fair Office, cash and credit are accepted.  Checks are not accepted.  

Where Can I Park?

Parking is available on our grounds at the Main Gate, Train Gate, and the South Gate. ADA parking is located near the gates. The Interstate Fair provides handicapped accessible parking spaces, more than code requirement, on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please check back in 2023 for current pricing.
