With summer just beginning no one wants to think about it ending, but everyone loves to think about the amazing food, rides and entertainment that comes with the Great New York State Fair. This year the NYS fair announced that they would be selling 200 lifetime admission passes this morning (May 14th, 2018) at 6am for $200.
Fair goers were able to purchase these tickets online at etix.com, however if they went to purchase them after 6:14am they were quickly disappointed when a the webpage brought them to a screen saying they were all sold out!
Yes, that’s right in less than 15 minutes those 200 Lifetime passes were sold out! It’s not been said if more Lifetime Passes would be available in the upcoming years or sooner.
These Lifetime passes are metal coins that have the owner’s name engraved onto it. The pass is good for admission for the pass owner ONLY on any day of the fair. The owner of the medallion will have to show valid photo ID upon entering the fair at the gate. As mentioned before these Lifetime passes cannot be used by anyone other than the owner, this includes family. If you lose your pass then you’re out of luck because sadly they are not replaceable.
Of you missed out on the Lifetime passes, don't sweat it, because this year opening day (Wednesday, August 22nd), and Labor day (Monday,September 3rd) admission is only $1, there’s also $3 Thursdays on August 23 and August 30th. As of right now any-other day admissions is $10, and children 12 years-old and younger are free everyday.
