Take your lunch break at the fair!


How it works:

  • Purchase a lunch card at the gate for $9 with cash (cash sales only).
  • Buy your lunch from the many fair food vendors on site. Fair food vendors take cash. ATMS are available inside the fairgrounds.
  • Return the lunch card by 1:30 p.m. to the same gate you entered on the same day purchased the card for a full $9 cash refund.
  • If you leave later than 1:30 p.m., then you forfeit your $9. The card is good only on the day purchased. This program is only for adult admission.
