Travel by Train to the Indiana State Fair

By August 12, 2009

Want to go to the Indiana State Fair but dread the hassles of driving and parking there? The WFMS FairTrain provides a solution. The train departs from the Fishers train station at 116th and Municipal Drive (1/2 mile west of I-69 at Exit 5) every 90 minutes daily from 8:45 a.m. to 10:15 p.m., and transports passengers to the station at 39th Street and Millersville Road, just 200 yards from Gate 6 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. The train departs from the fairgrounds and heads back to Fishers every 90 minutes daily from 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Fair train tickets are $13 for adults and $6 for ages 2-12 (kids under age 2 ride free). Tickets do not include admission to the fairgrounds upon arrival. Parking at the Fishers station is free.

The train's coaches are air-conditioned, making for a ride that's both scenic and comfortable.

Note: Plan to arrive at the station 30 minutes ahead of your departure time to park and purchase tickets. No reservations are needed. Happy trails!

FREE Fair Admission in INDY STAR NEWSPAPER Monday Aug. 17th issue, on page A10. Good for free admission Aug. 19th and 20th. Hope you enjoy. Those days there is also the $25.00 wrist band for all-day rides from noon to 10 pm! Save BIG. Please share this asap on the web site! It really helps families be able to spend more once inside the In. State Fair. Also, a FREE shuttle ride to the fair from 10 am at the east outside parking lot of Glendale Mall. The bus is grand and even has a restroom.
