Hardin County Fair season tickets will go on sale all over the county this week. This $20 ticket allows one adult and that person’s school age children accompanied by the person free admission to the fair each day of the fair. The ticket will be punched at the gate and a hand stamp is required for reentry the same day. School age means until high school graduation.
$8 youth season tickets are available at the Fair Office, as a convenience to those who purchase a season or membership ticket for older children, who may come without their parent. Students can still come in free with a parent with a season/membership ticket.
The difference between a season and a membership ticket is that a membership ticket allows a member to vote for directors or run for director. Membership tickets can only be purchased in the Fair Office. A season ticket can be exchanged for a membership ticket in the Fair Office. Fair Office hours begin Monday, August 6th. The office will be open through the fair Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.
