Indiana State Fair officials promote ‘Social Media Fridays’

Indianapolis, In. — Officials with the 2018 Indiana State Fair encourage fairgoers to show off their State Fair/Indiana pride every Friday during the fair (August 3, 10, 17). #FairFashionFridays, a social media campaign, encourages to photograph and share images of their fair fashions – denim and Indiana-branded T-shirts or tank tops – while enjoying the Fair.

Individuals who photograph themselves rocking their fair wear are asked to post images to social media and tag @IndyStateFair, along with the hashtag #FairFashionFridays. Throughout the Fairgrounds, designated signs will direct fairgoers to “selfie” locations where they can capture and share their “fair fashion” photos.  Each Monday during the fair, a winner from the previous Friday will be announced on the State Fair’s social media platforms and will be awarded a prize package (including restaurant gift cards, Pacers/Fever tickets) valued at $100.

Fairgoers are encouraged to purchase T-shirts or tank tops from the Indiana State Fair gift shop or local Indiana T-shirt companies such as The Shop (920 Broad Ripple Ave, Indianapolis, IN, 46220) and United State of Indiana or by visiting their booth in Exposition Hall during the fair.

The 2018 theme “STEP RIGHT UP! to The Greatest 17 Days of Summer,” revolves around Indiana’s rich circus heritage. Online ticket sales are available now, presented by WGU Indiana, at a discounted rate of $8 plus convenience fee on the Indiana State Fair website. Tickets can also be purchased at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum Box Office during regular business hours at the discounted rate. Tickets purchased at the gate are $13.
