Aug. 19, 2013 — Once upon a time, not-so-long ago, the people of Cabarrus had to wait until opening day of the Fair to purchase tickets for the rides and fun. With the kickoff of the 2013 Cabarrus County Fair just a few weeks away, now is your opportunity to purchase tickets and ride wristband vouchers online at a reduced rate. The Fair-a-tale-themed event will take place Sept. 6-14 at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center, Concord.
Advance tickets and ride wristband vouchers are available for sale through Sept. 5 at www.cabarruscountyfair.com
. Advance adult admission tickets for ages 12-64 cost $5 – a $2 savings off the gate price. Advance ride wristband vouchers can be purchased for $15, offering a $5 savings. Ride wristbands are offered every day of the Fair and allow fair-goers to ride unlimited mechanical rides at one low price. Just bring the advance ride wristband voucher on any day of the Fair to redeem for a wristband at the midway guest relations booth inside the fairgrounds.
Don’t forget to enter your magical pumpkins and beautiful hand-sewn ball gowns in a
Fair contest. The Fair hosts many competitions – from vegetable growing to baking and crafts to livestock. The 2013 Cabarrus County Fair Catalog is available online at www.cabarruscountyfair.com
