The Frisco Fair is Coming Back and it’s Bigger and Better!

Frisco Fair Mike Raye - 8

Good news, North Texas, it’s corny dog season!

Now that Texas has safely opened up, the Frisco Fair is coming back with a bang! From May 20 — June 13, 2021, fans of the Texas State Fair can come to Frisco for carnival rides, midway games, live music, arts and crafts, a cocktail tent, and of course…FAIR FOOD!

One of Frisco’s favorite ways to usher in summer, the Frisco Fair is presented by sponsor Frisco Fresh Market. Preston Cheng, General Manager, shared,

2020 was a rough year. For us, bringing the Fair to Frisco is a way to provide a much-needed fun event for family and friends. The health and safety for all involved is our top priority.  All Fair concessions staff will be required to wear masks and masks are encouraged for all Fairgoers. Rides will be sanitized and hand sanitizing stations will be positioned throughout the Frisco Fair area. We want everyone to have fun and be safe!

— Preston Cheng, General Manager, Frisco Fresh Market

The Frisco Fair will be located in the heart of Frisco, on the corner of Main Street and Frisco Street by Frisco Fresh Market. And everyone’s invited!

Admission to the fairgrounds is FREE; just pay to PLAY! Tickets for rides, games, and food can be purchased in person or online. (Rides start at $4.)

In-Person Tickets: Frisco Fair patrons can purchase Magic Money cards from Magic Money booths located throughout the fairgrounds. You’ll get a physical card that can be swiped to purchase food, drinks, carnival rides, petting zoo, games, dunking booth, and fair wear.

Online Tickets: Download the Magic Money App and create your account before you arrive. The Magic Money App on your Apple or Android Smart Device will serve as your proof of tickets, and you can reload additional funds or track funds usage on the app. You can also pause the Magic Money Card directly from the App if your device is lost or stolen. Simply scan the code on your device to purchase food, drinks, carnival rides, petting zoo, games, dunking booth, and fair wear.

Either you love corn dogs, or you’re not hungry.

All of your favorite Fair foods, including Fletcher’s famous corny dogs, will be available for the attendees’ culinary delight. Keep an eye on for a list of foods and where to find them at the Fair!

State Fair Food

State Fair Food

Will it be foods on sticks? Fried surprises? What will you pair with your cocktail from the cocktail tent?

Guaranteed to be Insta-awesome.

The Frisco Fair will also hold a virtual art competition for student artists and they’ll have fun Instagram-worthy areas! Plan to meet up with your friends at the Frisco Arts Mural Cube! Created by local artists, it’s a great spot to find your friends in the crowd and take selfies to remember your fun time at the Frisco Fair!

Each day, special VIPs will ring the Fair’s bells to celebrate the official opening. And another fun new element? For the first time, there will be a live music stage and a cocktail tent for those over 21.

As the Presenting Sponsor, Frisco Fresh Market wanted to highlight three nonprofits who have continued to selflessly work in the community throughout the pandemic. We’ll be showcasing the Frisco VFW, Frisco Arts Foundation, and the Boys & Girls Club of Collin County, providing special fun events and recognition for their organizations during the fair.

Who do you want to get stuck with at the top of the Ferris wheel?

It’s time to invite your friends and save the date, Frisco! Maybe this is an end-of-the-school-year BASH for the kids and their friends, or it’s a “grown-ups night out” to be a kid again. Maybe you’re just craving Fair foods. Whatever the draw, we look forward to fair-ing with you.
