Looking for that seamless entry to the Elkhart County 4-H Fair? For the second straight year, patrons can purchase Gate Admission tickets online and at several pre-sale merchant locations throughout the county.
“Online ticket sales began in mid-February and have been pretty strong,” said Bryan Blair, General Manager of the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds. “By giving our guests the opportunity to purchase General Admission tickets through our website at www.4hfair.org, we hope to save them some time from standing in line to purchase their tickets once they arrive at the Fair,” he added.
General Admission tickets purchased through the Fair website are $8 and can be printed at home or downloaded to a mobile device and scanned at the gate. “If you buy your ticket in advance you simply walk up to the ticket scanning area and there’s very little waiting in line,” Blair said.
For Fair-goers that want to save a few dollars, pre-sale General Admission tickets are available for $6 at various businesses around Elkhart County. “We’ve had a strong tradition of working with several area businesses to provide the opportunity for our guests to purchase advance tickets and save $2 off the regular price. We appreciate the relationships we’ve built with these partners over the years,” said Blair.
Advance pre-sale General Admission tickets are on sale until the Fair’s July 21 opening day at First Source Bank, Bristol Town Hall, First State Bank of Middlebury, Dr. Weldy and Associates, Varns and Hoover Hardware, Troyer Foods, Lake City Bank, Martin’s Supermarkets, Interra Credit Union, Elkhart County Farm Bureau Insurance, Key Bank, Goshen Animal Clinic, Chemical Bank and at the Elkhart County 4-H Fairground Office.
