2012 Illinois State Fair Increasing Prices 40-50%

The price of attending the Illinois State Fair is skyrocketing again. This summer, it will cost $7 for adults to attend for a day, a 40% increase from last year’s $5 admission price. In 2009, prices increased from $3 to $5 in 2009 and broke a 19-year run at the $3 admission rate. It looks like Illinois is playing some bigtime catch-up. Children and senior citizens will pay an extra 50% at $3 per person.
