Custom pricing options

The Michigan State Fair is an annual Labor Day tradition that we want all Michigan Residents to attend, and we want to ensure that Michigan’s #1 Family Event  is an incredible value. We heard you loud and clear and based on your feedback, we developed pricing options that are based on those suggestions!

You can customize your State Fair experience, and pay for only those attractions that you would like to visit. If you want to walk around, soak up the experience and not ride any rides or visit the amazing circus…you can do that. Interested in just fair entry and riding the rides on our fabulous carnival midway…you can do that. Interested in just fair entry and catching the shows in the second largest circus tent in North America…you can do that too.

If you’re having fun walking around and change your mind and decide you want to experience an attraction you didn’t originally pay for, don’t worry we will have locations on the grounds where you can purchase an upgrade for an additional cost.

You can buy tickets in advance and AVOID the ticket box lines when you purchase your tickets ONLINE. This allows you to go directly to the scanning and wristbanding area and get the fun started faster.
