Ticket prices will stay flat in 2024 for the Minnesota State Fair, fair officials announced on Sunday.

Admission will stay the same as 2023: $18 for adults, ages 13 to 64, $16 for seniors and children ages 5-12, and free for anyone age 4 and under.

The price freeze was approved during the annual meeting of the Minnesota State Agricultural Society. The fair's board of managers also approved $10.2 million for maintenance projects.

The fair says that will include new windows and doors at the Fine Arts Center, upgrades to the Kidway lot, a new ticket office outside the Grandstand, new doors and more fans for the horse barn, security investments, and adding water fill stations, among other projects.
