These entry passes allow one vehicle and its occupants to enter the fairgrounds each day Thursday, July 30–Saturday, Aug 8 and park in designated areas.

4-H/FFA families may enter Gate 1 (84th Street) or Gate 3 (Havelock Avenue — 2nd driveway). Gate 3 right lane will be an exhibitor express lane when possible. Static exhibitors are recommended to use Gate 1 on check-in/check-out days.
