Fairgoers looking to save $5 during their trip to the State Fair should take
advantage of the State Fair Park & Ride service at the Glendale Mall.
Established in 2004, the service has grown in popularity over the years and
now stands out as the only free parking option for fair visitors.
The State Fair Park & Ride is available to everyone. It offers free shuttle
service from Glendale Mall's Rural Street lot, where visitors can also park
for free, to the fairgrounds' northeast corner by the Family Fun Park. The
shuttles run every 20 minutes from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day of the fair,
Aug. 2 18.
"I learned about the Park and Ride service from a friend a few years ago and
that's the only way I'll go to the fair now," Noblesville resident Jeff
Visscher said. "It keeps me from battling the crowds down at the
fairgrounds and it's nice to save a few bucks, too."
For less budget conscious fairgoers, two new parking options are now
available for the first time.
* Reserved Parking guarantees visitors a convenient spot inside the
fairgrounds behind the Public Safety Center. This option is available
exclusively through the fair's web site, www.indianastatefair.com
<<a href="http://www.indianastatefair.com/" target="_blank">http://www.indianastatefair.com> , and the spot is only reserved for the
date selected. There are a limited number of spaces available and the cost
* Premiere Guest Parking is available through www.indianastatefair.com
<<a href="http://www.indianastatefair.com/" target="_blank">http://www.indianastatefair.com> or on site, when available. Visitors
park in the Old Farmer's Market lot on the east side of Fall Creek Parkway
directly across from Gate 6 and then receive concierge golf cart service
inside the fairgrounds to either Pioneer Village or Main Street. There are
a limited number of spaces available and the cost is $25.
The State Fair also offers specially designated spots for motorcycles in the
One Text or Call Could Wreck It All Infield. Those spots, like all others
in the Infield or E-Z Park lots surrounding the fairgrounds cost $5.
