Hoosiers promised ‘Fun at Every Turn’ at Indiana State Fair starting Friday

INDIANAPOLIS — It’s a Hoosier tradition: salivating over the sweet smell of roasted corn on the cob wafting through the warm summer air; hearing high-pitched screams mixed with laughter all over the massive midway; and watching a child’s eyes open wide as he gets his first close-up look at a majestic Clydesdale or a playful piglet. This is the Indiana State Fair.

Hoosiers are promised “Fun at Every Turn” while celebrating their agricultural heritage Friday through Aug. 18. Big-name entertainers like Styx, Joe Nichols, Kevin Costner and the Modern West Band and many more will perform free concerts, while attractions like Get Animated, the Sinbad High Dive Show and Rosstyn Ice Shows presented by CountryMark give families plenty to see and do.

Indiana’s State Fair, the sixth oldest in the country, is known for its livestock shows and 4-H competitions. This year, it will also be known for its popcorn power as Pop Weaver Popcorn presents the “Year of Popcorn” with a variety of popcorn-related activities and events, including the World’s Largest Popcorn Ball.

General admission is $10; advance tickets (available at through today) are $7; kids 5 and younger are free.
