Family Fun Park

Open daily from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m., the Family Fun Park is a great way to entertain the youths of your family! The park will have ponies to ride, go-karts, a stunt team to watch, and educational activities to learn about farming and Indiana! 


Concert Season Isn’t Over

If you love music, there’s a concert for everyone at the Free Stage (especially if you’re on a budget because, well, it’s free).

Midway: Get Your Ferris Wheel On (and other rides)

What’s a Fair without rides? At the Indiana State Fair, you have a ton of rides to hop on! And why pay the full price for each ride… it’s all about the deals, right? Which is why the Indiana State Fair is offering Midway Wristbands—they’re valid only on certain dates, but oh so worth it if you’re a ride junkie. Buy your wristband today!


So much food!

You don't think we would leave out one of the most important parts of the Indiana State Fair, would you? No, no. Trying all Fair food is a necessity. Our friend JD Cannon at HANK FM (and the voice of the Indiana State Fair) can vouch for that! He loves walking around taste-testing everything—if you need help deciding what to try, check out his favorite foods at the Indiana State Fair!
