Summer is about having fun with the family, but all that fun can deal a hard blow to your budget. I'm guessing the Illinois State Fair knows that, and that is why they made the decision to lower admission prices to the fair this year. (YAY!)

According to WTVO;

A trip to the Illinois State Fair is going to cost less this year, at least to get in.

Adult admission prices are $5 Sunday - Thursday, senior prices are $3 and children under 12 are free.


The Illinois State Fair runs August 8-18, 2019 in Springfield, and they have some MAJOR Country superstars hitting their Grandstand stage this year:

  • Dan & Shay - Sunday, August 11
  • Old Dominion - Thursday, August 15
  • Reba McEntire on Sunday, August 18

Tickets for these grandstand acts are obviously going fast, so you better get them now while you still can, here.
