Group Ticket Promotions: If you would like to provide a large group with tickets, the Dane County Fair has options that can meet your needs. Discounted advance tickets for admission and carnival rides are available to groups of 20 or more people. This is a great option and allows you to give away tickets to employees and customers for substantially less than the full gate admission cost. This is a great marketing tool for companies of any size. Contact the Fair Office at to discuss how this can work for your company.
