2014 Kansas State Fair Sees High Fairgoer Numbers

KSAL StaffNovember 21, 2014

While more people attended the 2014 Kansas State Fair than in previous years, officials say fewer people are buying tickets to watch events in the 90-year-old grandstand.

According to numbers released at the fair’s board meeting Thursday, The Hutchinson News reports grandstand attendance reached a low of about 23,200.

Fewer people have bought tickets for concerts and activities at the grandstand since 1993, when more than 57,000 took to the seats. Last year, about 30,500 people attended grandstand events. The previous low was in 2001 with about 23,400 people.

However, the Kansas State Fair this year saw its best attendance in 16 years, with more than 355,000 fairgoers.
