Local First Arizona and the Arizona State Fair have partnered to bring fun to Localists across the state. Anyone who wears a Local First Arizona Localist shirt to the Arizona State Fair and pre-registers with a special code will receive $1 entry to the Arizona State Fair.

“The Arizona State Fair is an iconic Arizona event, and we are thrilled to be working with them,” said Kimber Lanning, Founder and Executive Director of Local First Arizona. “There’s nothing quite like the Arizona State Fair, from the petting zoos and thrilling rides to the special exhibits and musical acts. The Fair food vendors always bring unique creations, and this year the Culinary Stage is programmed with even more chefs featuring local foods and flavors, something that Local First Arizona supports."

"Our Fair is a gathering place for Arizonans to celebrate locally and professionally created food, photos, artwork, and entertainment. On any day you can see paintings from your neighbor's child, your cousin's school choir, or a Fine Art masterpiece from someone around the corner. We take pride in providing an opportunity to share what is local," said Jen Yee, Assistant Executive Director of the Arizona Exposition & State Fair.

In addition to food, rides, games, Fair Admission also includes free general admission seating on a first come, first serve, basis to the Veteran's Memorial Concert Series. See The Flaming Lips, Garbage, Slayer, just to name a few.
