CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – Discounted tickets are now available to purchase in advance for this year’s Canfield Fair.

It’s the first time advance tickets are available for amusement rides. Someone has already bought 26 ride passes, saving $260.

The all-day ride passes are $20, saving riders 33%. Fair officials expect the early sale will be a way for fairgoers to handle inflation.

“It’s just another strategy to help people save a little bit of money, and we get a little bit of money in the bank.’ said George Roman, director of entertainment and concessions. “It helps us to a certain extent.”

Discounted three and six-day admission tickets are also available at the fairgrounds and on the Canfield Fair website. And tickets are also available for the grandstand events.

“Many take advantage of that. Not necessarily to get a discount on them but at least they have the tickets they want, the seating area where they’d like to have it,” Roman said.

The 176th year of the fair will run from August 31 to September 5.

All Day Ride Passes are now on sale through August 28 at the Administration Building.

Advance Ride All Day Passes are only available for purchase in person at the Fairgrounds Administration Building from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Discount admission tickets (3 and 6 scan/admissions) are also available for purchase at the Fairgrounds and at canfieldfair.com.

Tickets to the grandstand entertainment — Sam Hunt and John Fogerty concerts, as well as the Demolition Derby and Truck and Tractor Pull — are also available at the Administration Office, Canfieldfair.com and Ticketmaster.com.
