Why didn’t the State Fair announce rescheduled concert dates when the 2020 Wisconsin State Fair was canceled?2020-06-25T12:15:37-05:00

We were unable to start negotiations for the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair with our scheduled artists until the official decision to cancel the State Fair was made on May 28, 2020.

We are happy that we were able to reschedule these concerts quickly and now be able to allow Fairgoers to keep their concert tickets for the new 2021 show dates.

Should I keep my physical ticket or print-at-home ticket for the 2021 show or will I get a new ticket for the new show date?2020-06-25T12:17:14-05:00

Your original tickets will be valid for the 2021 show date.

What if I purchased my ticket through a source other than Etix or the State Fair Ticket Office? Will they roll over to the 2021 concert date?2020-06-25T12:45:31-05:00

Yes, your tickets will roll over to the 2021 date if the original purchaser did not initiate a refund request.

If you are unsure if your tickets were refunded by the original purchaser, you can verify if your ticket is still valid for the 2021 show date by contacting the State Fair Ticket Office at tickets@wistatefair.com or 414-266-7100 between 9 am – 3 pm, Monday through Friday. Please be aware that original purchasers have until July 27, 2020 to initiate a refund request.

If your ticket is no longer valid due to the original purchaser receiving a refund, you may purchase the same seat from the State Fair Ticket Office if it is still available, or the next best available seat.
