Kansas State Fair Attendance in 2016 Third Highest Ever

KSAL StaffOctober 24, 2016

The Kansas State Fair recorded its third highest attendance ever this year.

General Manager Susan Sankey said 359,808 people visited the 10-day fair, the third highest number in the event’s 104-year history.

The Hutchinson News reports that 2015 was a record-breaking year for fair attendance with 369,322 visitors, beating the previous record set in 1995 at 361,647.

Sankey says those years had near-perfect weather but this year’s fair had some rain.

A final fair budget is expected to be ready for the fair’s board on Nov. 2.
