The only thing better than going to the Arizona State Fair is getting a great deal when you go! Here are the special promotions and discounts being offered at the Arizona State Fair this year. Check back often, since I add more specials as they are announced.
Discounts on Admission and Rides at the 2012 Arizona State Fair
A season pass means unlimited admission for the person named on the pass (ID required every time you enter). If you buy it at the Fair at Guest Services, that day's admission price paid will be applied toward your season pass purchase. Keep your receipt!
3 Every Day 3 Dollar Discount
Buy 3 dairy products - milk, cheese, and yogurt and receive $3 off any regular full-priced Fair Admission on any day. Items must be purchased in one transaction, and show one each milk, cheese, yogurt. Receipt must detail items purchased, and must be surrendered to receive discount. Products must be dairy, no soy, or nut products may be substituted. Not valid online or with any other offer. One offer per receipt.
Read & Ride Discount
Students ages 5-14 read books, then fill in the Official Read & Ride book report form with brief summaries of approximately 25 words in length each. Children age 6 and under are welcome to draw pictures instead. Books must be approved by the student's teacher or parent as appropriate for the student's age and reading level. The adult signs the form verifying that the student has completed the books. Students bring the signed form to the Guest Services booth, at the southwest corner of the Coliseum during the Fair, to redeem for ride passes. The student must be present to redeem form for ride tickets. Maximum of 3 free rides per student.
