Fair Ticket Information

Can I use my admission tickets(s) in 2021? Any 2020 pre-Fair admission tickets that you did not submit a refund request for will be good for any day at the 2021 Fair, August 12-22.

How can I stay safe?
Recommendations for everyday preventative actions include:

  • Staying home when sick
  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Following proper coughing etiquette
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • If you have a compromised immune system, please check with your health care provider to determine your own risks before attending events or traveling

Are masks required?
All safety precautions will be followed per CDC guidelines in August 2021. Ticket purchasers will want to check the Iowa State Fair website for updates prior to the 2021 Iowa State Fair.
