If you’re like most people, you have great memories of the Arizona State Fair – and it’s back this year, better than ever before. This guide explains what you’ll see and what there is to do at the 2021 Arizona State Fair.
The 2021 Arizona State Fair in Phoenix
Located at the Arizona State Fairgrounds (1826 West McDowell Road in Phoenix), the 2021 Arizona State Fair has been going strong since 1905. This year marks the 116th anniversary of the event, which runs from now until October 30, 2021.
2021 Arizona State Fair Hours
Admission gates are open Wednesday through Sunday, and the hours are as follows:
- Wednesday: Noon to 9 p.m.
- Thursday: Noon to 9 p.m.
- Friday: Noon to 10 p.m.
- Saturday: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
- Sunday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The midway area, food vendors and other vendors typically stay open until 11 p.m. or later, and the time they actually close depends on how many people are still using their services. Rides stop after the La Grande Wheel goes dark, and the Shopping Pavilion closes at 10 p.m. The livestock barns close at 9 p.m. to give the animals some much-needed rest.
