HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) It will cost adults more to attend next year’s Kansas State Fair but tickets for children and the elderly will stay the same.
Fair officials said Thursday that adult ticket prices will increase from $8 to $10 at the gate and from $5 to $6 for advance tickets.
Tickets for children aged 5 to 12 will remain at $3 in advance and $4 at the gate. Those 60 and older will pay $4 and $6, respectively.
Fair general manager Denny Stoecklein says the fair resisted raising ticket prices in recent years because of the struggling economy. But he says the increased revenue is needed.
The Hutchinson News reports that the Kansas State Fair is one of the few in the country that is mostly self-funded.
