State Fair Homeschool Tickets

Hi everyone!  It’s that time of year to submit your requests for your FREE homeschool tickets to the State Fair in the fall.  Words of advice…follow the directions exactly, do it before the deadline, and just know they won’t come in the mail until right before the Fair starts.  In the past, homeschool days have been on Thursdays (which has usually been the half-price food days too) and your teacher ticket is good anytime.  🙂

2017 Home School Ticket Request Guidelines

***Please Note:  The deadline date for making your request has moved to the middle of May****

All requests must be made in writing. No requests made by phone or e-mail will be accepted.

You can submit a request anytime between March 1, 2017 and May 12, 2017.

The program is for K thru 12th grade. To be eligible, Kindergarteners must be 5 by September 29, 2017. We do not have a ticket program for children younger than Kindergarten/age 5. 

The program is for families living in Texas within a 100 mile radius of the Fairgrounds.  Each family must submit individually to avoid duplicate requests.  We do not accept requests from home school groups or associations.

Your request letter should include your name, mailing address, email address and phone number(s). The letter should be computer printed or neatly hand written for clarity. Including an email address and daytime phone number is necessary for us to contact you in the event you neglect to include all required information.

Include BOTH the ages and grade levels of each student as they will be when the Fair opens on September 29th, 2017. Name of student is not necessary. Requests without this information will be returned unfilled.

We can send one teacher ticket per family. If you would like a teacher ticket, please include that request in your letter. There is no such thing as a principal ticket.

Include a business size (#10– measures 4 1/8” X 9 ½”) envelope with one first class stamp ($0.49 postage). Please DO NOT address the envelope in any way as we will print address labels. The envelope must be business size because of the length of the tickets.

All requests must be POSTMARKED AND COMPLETE by the deadline date of Friday, May 12, 2017.  Incomplete requests and requests arriving after this date will be returned unfilled.
