Our event has no “gate admission.” Each area of the festival is independent and you pay only for what you want. The rides require tickets, which may be purchased at a discount until 4:00pm on Thursday of festival week. Carnival games require cash. Food is paid for by cash or credit card, at the point of sale. Casino-style gaming is played by purchasing chips, and any winnings are paid out in cash by the Casino Cashier. Bingo games are paid for in cash only, per game.
