Start the school year with an unforgettable field trip to the 2021 Utah State Fair! Educators can enhance class curriculum through an educational experience that cannot be accom-plished in the classroom setting. Classroom and Home Educa-tors can create a unique self-guided experience by visiting specific exhibits and attractions that compliment your class-
room curriculum. The many educational activities and exhibits are outlined in the downloadable Field Trip Guide.
No reservations needed, just arrive ready by following the instructions below.

Admission for School Groups

  • Students and chaperones pay only $1.00 each (chaperones must pay with the group to qualify for the $1.00 rate).
  • Admission will be waived for students unable to pay the $1.00 admission charge.
  • We allow a ratio of one (1) teacher/chaperone to three (3) or more students. Additional teachers/chaperones must pay regular gate admission.
  • School groups must pay with cash, one school check, money order or credit card in one transaction (no personal checks will be accepted). No pre-payments will be accepted.
  • Please select one group representative to pay for all admission. Be prepared to provide the school name, address, phone number, number of students and number of chaperones paying the $1.00 admission fee, and number of student admissions being waived.
  • School groups should enter through Gate C (near the Days of 47 Arena).

Lunch Storage

  • Schools are welcome to bring their own lunches onto the grounds. Lunch storage is available in the Administration Building. We are sorry but no refrigeration is available.
  • If a lunch area is needed, picnic tables are located on the Center Mall and throughout the Fairpark. Grass areas may also be utilized as lunch areas.
