Amador fair advance tickets available now

By From page B12 | July 17, 2013

For those kids who can’t get enough of the carnival rides at the Amador County Fair, July 25 to 28, now is the time to save money on advance-sale wristbands.

Anyone who has stood in line for an hour to buy Destruction Derby tickets the day of the event only to hear they have sold out will appreciate the convenience of ordering a reserved seat online.

The fair has a number of opportunities that make it a bit more affordable and save time when buying Amador Fair and carnival tickets early using the e-ticket system. Purchases can also be made through the fair office.

In addition to selling discounted fair admission and carnival rides, advance purchases can also be made for the annual Wine Tasting event on Friday, July 26 and the grandstand events.

Seating for the Destruction Derby, which is often a sell-out, will be all reserved seating in both the grandstands and the bleachers.

General admission seating is offered for the Truck Pulls on Friday and there is reserved plus general admission seating for the Rodeo on Saturday, July 27.

Save on the cost of carnival rides by purchasing discount tickets or wristbands in advance. A $20 coupon purchased by Wednesday, July 24, can be exchanged for an unlimited ride wristband which can be used from noon to 7 p.m. for any one day. During the fair, ride tickets will cost $1 each and rides take three to five tickets each.

Carnival hours are noon until close of the fair each day, except Thursday when limited rides will open following the Kids Parade. The carnival also provides one complimentary ride ticket for kids who participate in the parade.

For more information and to order tickets visit or call 209-245-6921.
