Your Blue Ribbon State Fair Tradition

The best route to
the State Fair is
on the bus!

You go to the State Fair for the food, the farm animals, the rides and more! Getting to the State Fair on the bus is a fun tradition, too. Instead of driving, park your car for free and take a stress-free, non-stop, air-conditioned ride straight to the fairgrounds.

Take a State Fair Express bus and you’ll save on gas and parking costs. Plus, we’ll drop you off and pick you up right outside the gates

>> Tickets will be available Aug. 1!
