There is also a $30 Pre-Show Party ticket offered as an additional upgrade for all paid concerts, the fair reported.

In addition to concert tickets, the state fair said fairgoers will also be able to purchase tickets at the Box Office to the ISF Bares, Broncs, and Bulls rodeo, the ISF Championship Demolition Derby, and the ITPA Truck & Tractor Pulls presented by the Illinois Soybean Association.

“We are excited to be partnering with the Illinois Department of Agriculture to help host this event,” said Illinois Soybean Vice Chair Ron Kindred. “The Illinois State Fair is a wonderful event where guests are able to combine fun and education all in one place. We are thrilled to be providing the opportunity for people to enjoy the tractor pull where many tractors will be using biodiesel blends made with soybean oil from Illinois farms.”
