Discount admission and ride tickets for this year’s South Carolina State Fair (Oct. 13-24) are available through Tuesday, Oct. 12. Patrons can save up to 50 percent by purchasing tickets in advance at SCStateFair.org or at participating Circle K locations.
“In addition to big savings, buying in advance is a great way to save time and skip the box office lines,” S.C. State Fair General Manager Nancy Smith said in a release. “We hope everyone will take advantage of these discounts and join us this October as we celebrate our 152nd S.C. State Fair together.”
Discount admission tickets are $10 per person ($15- $20 during the fair) and discount ride vouchers are $25 per person ($33 -$38 during the fair).
Ride vouchers can be exchanged for a Pay-One-Price wristband for unlimited rides any one day of the fair. Vouchers may also be exchanged for 30 ride coupons any day of the fair.
New this year, patrons can purchase a Family Fun Pack, available only at SCStateFair. org for a limited time through Friday, Oct. 19. Fun Packs include four admission tickets, two ride vouchers and one car entry pass to Carolina Lights in December 2021. Buy now and save big, as the Fun Packs are a $176 value.
The 2021 S.C. State Fair will return in-person Wednesday, Oct. 13 through Sunday, Oct. 24 for 12 days of exhibits, competitions, food, rides, entertainment and the free, daily “CIRCUS at the Fair.”
This year’s fair will implement a new mandatory clear bag policy — similar to those that have been put in place throughout Columbia and across the country, complying with a new level of security expected of large, heavily attended events and festivals.
