Adult admission is now only $5 Sunday through Thursday
Kevin Gordon, Manager of the Illinois State Fair (ISF) in Springfield is pleased to announce that Sunday through Thursday daily admission prices have been lowered to $5 for adults during the 2019 State Fair—senior prices will remain at $3 and children 12 years of age and younger are free. This is being done to make the fair a more affordable family-friendly experience. Parking on the fairgrounds is still only $5 a day.
