The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Exposition has brought annual joy and entertainment to the people of South Florida for over 60 years. Running from March 13 to March 30, 2014, the Fair brings great rides, foods, games, shows, as well as the talents of more than 40,000 of Miami-Dade students to people from all over South Florida. This year, the experience is even better with new things to see and more deals to get the most out of your money.
New This Year:
The use of P*O*P wristbands (unlimited ride passes) has been extended into the weekends.
Senior citizens 65 years of age and older now get in free; as do children 5 and under.
General admission is $12 at the gate, $8 if bought at Sedano’s Supermarkets, and $5 for FIU students online with a promotional code.
An unlimited ride wristband costs $25 at the ticket booth, the same as 22 individual ride coupons. Since the number of coupons per ride averages about 3 tickets, the wristband is the best deal The Fair has to offer. Sedano’s Supermarkets are offering P*O*P wristbands for up to $15 less than at the ticket booth, and FIU students can buy one for $22 online with their promotional code.
