    What time can you start to line up for the open seating?

    • Fair Assoc says:

      If you’re interested in a front row spot at the stage you can start waiting as soon as the ticket gates open Friday at 8am. Everyone waiting must have a ticket and remain in their spot, cannot save with chairs or other items.

  2. Wendy Schwengel-Gosz says:

    Is all seating General Admission?
