A Fair for All Reasons
The Arizona State Fair’s combination of the familiar and the “who knew?” fantastic sets up a treasure map of exploration for every type of fair goer. Thrill seekers set ride records on the Galaxy Coaster, until they discover utter hilarity during the Llama Obstacle Show. Pie eating contestants become hypnotized (literally!) inside the Magic Show. These crossover discoveries explain why over 1 million Arizona residents attend the Arizona State Fair every year, no doubt determined to watch the dust fly again inside the demolition derby, followed by the discovery of a young calf roper on the rise during the High School Rodeo. Here’s a look at what every fairgoer might find, from the familiar to the futuristic, at the Arizona State Fair.
