Tickets for Brett Eldredge state fair concert go on sale Saturday morning.

SPRINGFIELD — This weekend marks your first chance to purchase tickets to central Illinois’ most anticipated summer concert series. Tickets to all of the announced Illinois State Fair Grandstand concerts will go on sale Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. via Ticketmaster.com. For those who prefer to purchase their tickets in person, the Emmerson Building will begin selling tickets on Monday, April 16th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
It’s important to remember that Ticketmaster and the Illinois State Fair Box office are the only authorized outlets to sell concert tickets for the State Fair grandstand. Third party outlets often inflate ticket prices to turn a profit and the buyer has no guarantee as to the authenticity of the ticket they just purchased.

The Illinois State Fair will once again offer Stage Side Parties for each of the Grandstand concerts. An additional $30 ticket will provide fairgoers access to an exclusive pre-show party that includes a food provided by the Illinois Pork Producers Association, entertainment, giveaways and early entry into the concert. New this year, the fair will provide each stage side ticket holder with a parking pass for that night’s concert if the tickets are purchased prior to July 31st. The Stage Side Party is only available to those who have purchased a concert ticket to attend that night’s concert – BOTH concert & party ticket will be required to enter the party tent. These tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster once tickets go on-sale.
