There will also be tons of food and drink, including a new Florida State Fair Funnel Cake Cider crafted by Plant City’s Keel Farms Agrarian Ale + Cider.

As usual, it will take place at the Florida State Fairgrounds near the intersection of I-4 and I-75, so it’s really easy to get there from Orlando.

Pandemic safety protocols will be in effect, including mandatory face masks for all guests and social distancing.


Tickets are $9 adults/$5 children age 6-11. $7 Senior tickets are available Mon-Thurs. Unlimited ride armbands are $20 Mon-Thurs and $30 for any day ride armbands. There are also discount and free promo days throughout the fair. Parking is free every day.
