The Great New York State Fair’s Cyber Monday ticket sale returns Monday, Nov. 28, offering the lowest price of the year on tickets to the 2017 New York State Fair.
Acting Director Troy Waffner said the online-only sale will provide 20,000 admission tickets at just $3 per ticket, which is 50 percent off the regular advance sale price and 70 percent off the $10 price at the gate during the fair.
The sale begins at 6 a.m. at the fair’s online ticket sales site, at http://www.etix.com/ticket/p/4350112
“We’ve just completed the greatest fair in our 175 year history, with the highest marks ever from visitors," Waffner said. "The new grounds have never looked better and our programming this year will top last year’s so these tickets are a better value than ever. I encourage fairgoers to get their tickets early since they definitely won’t last.”
Tickets sold on Cyber Monday are only sold online and on the fair’s official online ticket seller, etix.com. Etix charges 13 cents per ticket and a credit card fee of 2.5 percent per ticket, making the total cost of each ticket $3.21.
Purchases are limited to eight tickets per person. Buyers may either print out the tickets or use their mobile phone or device at the gate to show proof of purchase for entrance to the fair.
At least two more special admission ticket promotions will occur before the fair.
The Halfway to the Fair sale will take place on Friday, Feb. 24 when tickets will be $4 each, and the Cinco de Mayo sale, when tickets will be $5 each, will take place on Friday, May 5.
The regular advance sale ticket effort begins in July at $6 per ticket. Groups and businesses buying at least 100 tickets can receive special discounts through the Fair’s Group Sales program.
