Did you forget to buy your $3 State Fair tickets this morning?
Well, they sold out in just two hours. But now the offer has been extended.
The Great New York State Fair Cyber Monday tickets sale will be extended with an additional 25,000
tickets available for purchase online beginning at 3 p.m. (right now).
Tickets are $3 a piece, with an extra surcharge from Etix that brings the cost to $3.21 per ticket. That's way below the $10 price at the fair gate or the $6 presale price.
The Cyber Monday sellout reinforces the fair’s
popularity and its newest ranking by CarnivalWarehouse – an online industry publication
that ranks the top 50 fairs and festivals in North America.
The New York State Fair jumped
from seventh to fourth place for most attended state fair in the U.S. as a
result of the more than 1.1 million visitors in 2016. To continue growing the
fair’s attendance, the Phase Two Task Force will hold a public input session on
Dec. 6 to help shape future improvements to the fairgrounds.
The $3 tickets are the lowest ticket price
that will be available to the 2017 fair, which will take place Aug. 24 to
Sept. 4 next year.
Tickets will be available the Fair’s online ticket
sales site at www.etix.com/ticket/p/4350112.
Purchases are limited to eight tickets per person. Tickets may be
printed or sent to a mobile phone or device to show proof of purchase for
entrance to the fair.
