PHOENIX — Can you smell the deep-fried corn dogs and smoked turkey legs, yet?
The Arizona State Fair is less than 100 days away, and organizers have started to announce who will take the stage at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the fairgrounds for the nightly concerts. This year's fair runs Oct. 4-27, 2019.
All of the concerts are included with normal fair admission, but separate tickets can be purchased to reserve and guarantee seats. Concert tickets are scheduled to go on sale at 10 a.m. on July 12 and will be sold via the fair's website, azstatefair.com, according to a spokesperson for the fair.
Reserved seating tickets range between $40 -$60, a spokesperson said, and when bought, does include admission to the fair. New this year, the fair will have $100 VIP tickets for sale. A VIP ticket includes a reserved seat in "section A" (closest to the stage), VIP parking in the North Coliseum Lot that is good for the entire day, two drinks backstage, and swag.
