Chairman Brian Gildehaus says the upcoming Washington Town & Country Fair will again offer five days of fun — concerts, rides, exhibits and other shows — all for just one ticket price.
Season passes and daily tickets are on sale now at washmofair.com or the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce office.
The Fair will kick off Wednesday, Aug. 1, and run through Sunday, Aug. 5, at the Washington fairgrounds.
Gildehaus said tickets purchased online are insured against loss or theft, and can be printed or presented on a mobile device.
People can credit a specific Fair queen contestant if purchasing tickets online by using their promo code.
“That promo code also allows you to save $5 per tickets,” Gildehaus said.
Ticket prices are unchanged from last year.
The cost for a five-day season pass purchased in advance is $50 for an adult and $35 for a child, ages 6 to 15. Children under 5 are free.
Starting Aug. 1, season tickets will jump to $55 for an adult and $40 for a child.
Daily tickets will be sold at the gate and online. Daily admission prices are as follows:
Wednesday — $15 for adult and $10 for child.
Thursday — $20 for an adult and $10 for a child.
Friday and Saturday — $30 for an adult and $15 for a child.
Sunday — $20 for an adult and $15 for a child.
Gildehaus said the Fair Board works hard each year to keep ticket prices affordable.
“We feel it is important to provide as much value as we can for the ticket price,” he said. “It is a balance that is taken into consideration at every step in the event planning process.
Gildehaus said the Fair Board also feels the one-ticket price offers “tremendous value” with five days of entertainment, including unlimited rides on the midway, an action-packed motorsports schedule, nine bands on the Main Stage and 10 of the best regional bands under the entertainment tent, along with many children’s activities, contests, exhibits, Agri-Land and livestock shows.
“There aren’t many places you can go and get all of that in the price of one ticket,” he said. “We feel fortunate we are able to offer so much for a low price.”
