It’s almost State Fair Time! If you’re a fair-goer and a money-saver, you’ll love these discounts and FREE admission opportunities coming up for the Indiana State Fair, August 5-21st 2011.

  • Midway Voucher: Before the fair starts (prior to 8/5/11), head to Walmart and pick up a special voucher to purchase Midway wristbands for just $17. Wristband holders also receive a free Pepsi and game ticket on-site at the fair.

  • Discount Tickets: As always, if you purchase your $7 discount tickets in advance at one of these retailers you’ll save on admission:  Walmart (Indiana stores only), CVS, Indian Farm Bureau, the Marten House Hotel, and the Fairgrounds box office.

  • FREE Ticket: Purchase an Indianapolis Star newspaper on Monday, August 8th. Inside you’ll find a ticket good for FREE admission on either August 10th or 11th.

  • $2 Tuesdays: Print a voucher from Turkey Hill and use each Tuesday during the run of the fair, and get in for just $2 per person. I remember last year Turkey Hill was sampling ice cream, hope they’ll repeat the treat this year!

  • Carpool Day:  August 15th is Carpool Day!  Get up to 10 people in for just $15 per vehicle, but you must print and show this voucher from IPL.

  • Kiddie Rides: Also on August 15th, you can pay just $10 per child and get unlimited kiddie rides from 12-10pm.

  • AAA Free Day: Show your AAA membership card on Thursday, August 18th and get in FREE!
  • Pepsi Can Discount: On Sunday August 21st save $2 on your admission cost when you bring a Pepsi can to the gate.

These are my favorite discount options. See the full list so you don’t miss an opportunity to save at the Indiana State Fair!
