Before heading out to the fair this year be sure to download the new and improved Indiana State Fair app presented by WGU Indiana. This year fairgoers will be able to plan their entire visit through the app and make a sharable itinerary from the extensive list of events and activities. Have some fun talking about the “What’s Hot” list with friends on social media and rating your favorite vendors. You can also use the app to cast your vote in this year’s Taste of the Fair Contest. In this event, participating vendors are helping to celebrate Indiana’s bicentennial with the challenge to create new and original fair food rich in Indiana history. Fairgoers will have the opportunity to feast on the competition and cast their vote on the app from August 5-17.
Looking for some Fair fun geared just for the younger set? Head on over to the Family Fun Park, a smoke-free family entertainment area open daily from 9 am – 8 pm. Take a leisurely ride on the ponies or speed it up with a lap around the go-kart track. Hop aboard the Indiana Bicentennial Train for a fun photo op with family. And when you need a little break, find a seat to watch the Swashbucklers Comedy Pirate Show or the Timberworks Lumberjack Show.
