Grandstand ticket sales at Kansas State Fair wane

KSAL StaffNovember 3, 2016

The 2016 Kansas State Fair had its second best attendance in at least 40 years, but the number of people gracing the grandstand at the fairgrounds continues to wane.

The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/2ehUMdW) reports that nearly $360,000 people attended the state fair this year, but the fair lost a net $56,905 in grandstand tickets sales. That includes revenue from concerts, the demolition derby and the truck and tractor pull. Grandstand acts have collectively lost money six of the past eight years.

Some numbers reported to state fair board members Wednesday were positive, including the number of young people who participated in the Kansas’ Largest Classroom Program.

The board also reported a record high of more than $257,000 for the fair’s corporate club sponsorship.
