If you've never been to the Indiana State Fair - where have you been hiding? The time has come for you and your family to step right up and enjoy this Hoosier staple! Running from August 3rd- 19th, in the center of the city, is the state's largest display of agriculture, live entertainment, and amazing foods! With promotional ticket days, free concerts, and a circus this year - there's truly something for everyone to enjoy at the Indiana State Fair. Below, we've highlighted a few things NOT to be missed at the fair this year!




The Subaru Skyride


New to the fair last year, this fun tram flies you high over the Main Street of the Indiana State Fair. Take in an overhead view of the entire experience and the breeze if it's an especially hot day at the fair!


Food Stands Abound


If you're looking to try some new wacky foods or get your elephant ear fix, the Indiana State Fair has you covered. This year, there are over 130 different food stands for your taste buds to enjoy. Nachos, anything & everything fried, grilled cheese, milkshakes, ice cream, slushies - the food selection covers any and all "fair food" that you could possibly think of.


The Midway Rides


With the biggest Midway in the Midwest, the Indiana State Fair takes rides seriously! The fair's latest addition is a roller coaster called The Bullet Train. You can also enjoy all the standard rides - the Tilt-A-Whirl, the Sizzler, and the Thunderbolt. There are also plenty of rides for some of the littlest riders in your group - check out KiddieLand on the Midway!


Concerts & Entertainment


The entertainment options at the fair continue to get better every single year! If you're into concerts, check out their schedule to see what they are offering! If you're more into rodeo & mud bogs, they have plenty for you to see when you visit. The MetroPCS Family Fun Park has great family-friendly activities happening all day long. Pony rides, go-karts, and the Indiana History Train are just a few of the stops that are great for the whole family to check out!
