Arkansas State Fair Attendance Strong Again Monday

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LITTLE ROCK (Oct. 15, 2019) – The Arkansas State Fair saw another big day for attendance on Monday with several popular promotions and ideal weather.

Kiddie Day, Two Dollar Day and Lunch at the Fair combined to bring in a crowd of 41,392. That total is the second best Monday ever. The 2017 total for Monday attendance is the all-time record at 43,687.

General Manager Doug White noted that the mild weather and multiple promotions during the day made for a great crowd.

“Monday is always popular with Kiddie Day in the morning, Two Dollar Day and Lunch at the Fair, and the weather certainly contributed to the attendance figure,” White explained.

Cumulative attendance through Monday stands at 204,659. That leaves the fair’s 2019 attendance well ahead of last year’s pace of 119,809 when the fair suffered through several days of rain.

The Arkansas State Fair’s all-time attendance record of 473,106 was set in 2015.

The general manager said vendors and the carnival are pleased with the public’s response so far this year.

“Food and beverage vendors and the carnival are reporting very healthy sales figures through the first four days,” White stated. “We truly appreciate Arkansans coming out to support their state fair.”

The Arkansas State Fair, the state’s largest event, continues through Sunday, October 20.
