Discount Wednesday Admission At State Fair

Albuquerque – Admission to the New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque will be just $2 for adults, senior citizens and children on Wednesday.

The fair's Murphy Brothers Carnival is offering game coupons, single rides and a variety of concessions on the midway for $2 this Wednesday as well.

State Fair general manager Craig Swagerty says the fair usually offers some kind of discount every year, but decided this year to offer the lower admission on one of the fair's historically slower days.

The regular $7 parking fee still applies for those who choose to park on the fairgrounds.

The regular New Mexico State Fair admission prices are $7 adults, $5 seniors and $5 children 6 to 12.

The fair is open Wednesdays through Sundays this year through Sept. 26.
