San Mateo Fair's $5 March Madness underway
Hundreds scored savings in first two days of discount ticket promotion
On Monday the San Mateo County Fair launched its first-ever March Madness Campaign, offering $5 admission tickets on sale during March only. No matter the age (adults, seniors and juniors) fair admission tickets are discounted to $5—March 12 through March 31. The $5 price is over 65 percent off the fair time adult admission price of $15.
Also on sale are discounted unlimited ride wristbands ($28), good any day of the fair's 9-day run. Tickets can be purchased online at sanmateocountyfair.com or in person at the San Mateo County Event Center, 2495 S. Delaware (weekday business hours).
For concert lovers, Gold Circle admission is discounted –just $40 (all ages) and for the first time ever includes admission to the fair. Other benefits of Gold Circle admission are reserved concert seating in Fiesta Hall (main concert stage), private entrance through Expo Café for the show, and easy access to the no-host bar and no-host food area. Those who prefer to forgo the prime seating benefits of Gold Circle admission are invited to attend the concert for free, on an open seating, space-available basis. All concerts are free and included with fair admission.
Season passes are also on sale. Season passes will only be available on a pre-sale basis—season passes will not be sold at the gate during the run of the fair. Season passes, good for all nine days of the fair, are $45 for adults ($135 value), $30 for juniors ages 6-12 ($90 value) and $30 seniors age 62+ ($72 value).
San Mateo County Fair's 2018 Concert Series final lineup is: Sheila E. (June 9); TLC (June 10); Sugar Ray (June 13), Pablo Cruise (June 14), Average White Band (June 15) and John Michael Montgomery (June 16). All concerts are in Fiesta Hall, nightly at 7:30 p.m. World-renowned Master Illusionist Peter Gossamer will perform on June 11 and 12.
After the March Madness promotion concludes (beginning April 1) discount admission will still be available, but at the regular pre-sale discount prices. Pre-sale prices will be $10 adult; $8 junior (ages 6-12); and $6 seniors (ages 62+). Gold Circle admission will continue to be discounted at $40 and carnival wristbands will continue to be discounted at $28.
