Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — While it’s still more than 70 days away, the North Carolina State Fair is now offering advanced ticket sales – and you could save up to almost 50 percent by buying them now.

FastTrack gate admission, ride and attraction tickets, and a variety of carnival options are now available for purchase. The sale will run until Oct. 14.

“Buying in advance can save you up to 45 percent off prices once you arrive at the fair,” said N.C. State Fair manager Kent Yelverton in a release. “It is the most economical way to visit – especially if you’re bringing the whole family.”

Online advance-sale-only ticket packages are a good way to save money and are especially useful if you have a specific fair experience you want to try out, Yelverton said.

“We offer packages tailored for every type of fairgoer,” Yelverton said. “If you love the carnival or plan to bring the whole family, there are packages for that. Want to try out one of our attractions like the State Fair SkyGazer, State Fair Flyer or N.C. Public House? We’ve got packages for those, too.”
