Big E-Ticket Price: Big E-Tickets are just $9 for a limited time! A Big E-ticket may be purchased for $9 if purchased now, but the offer is only good today. The Eastern States Exposition’s regular admission is $15, but on Thursday, June 9, the fair is holding a Flash Ticket Sale. Visitors can purchase $9 entrance tickets online at BigEvents.com between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. The Big E will take place from September 16 to October 2 this year.
Each order is limited to a maximum of eight tickets, which can be used on any one day of the fair, according to the Eastern States Exposition. In 2021, nearly 1.5 million people attended the Eastern States Exposition for the first time in its 105-year history, giving it the “historic categorization of the third largest in North America for the first time.” They were all gone in less than a minute after the Big E’s $1,000 ‘golden tickets’ went on sale. The Big E announced on Wednesday that the remaining golden tickets were sold out in under one minute and two seconds. If you were disappointed that you weren’t able to attend The Big E in 2020, now is your chance.
The largest fair in New England is now providing a “Golden Ticket” discount after being forced to postpone its event this year due to COVID-19. With the purchase of a $1,000 ticket, the Big E in West Springfield is free to enter for the life of the ticket holder and a visitor. Golden Tickets will be available for purchase on November 18 at 10 a.m. There are only a few tickets available. The tickets “have a value that will pay for themselves in a matter of years,” according to The Big E’s website. “At the current gate fee of $30 per day and $10 per day parking, two people attending The Big E every day for 17 days is worth $680.”
Drew over 1.65 million visitors over 17 days
“This is the time of year when we normally put one fair to bed and begin the long, thrilling trip to the next,” said Eugene Cassidy, president, and CEO of the Eastern States Exposition. Following the unfortunate derailment of the 2020 edition, we are completely committed to making the 2021 edition our best yet.” Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s 104-year-old fair, which drew over 1.65 million visitors over 17 days, will not be held in September. In a statement, they said it was “one of the most difficult decisions we, as an institution, have had to make in recent years.” “
Summer weekends on the fairgrounds were promoted as a response, with outdoor dining at the Sam Adams Brew Garden and Storrowton Tavern, a museum experience, and shopping at Storrowton Village, among other things. The fair will return in 2021, from September 17 to October 3. The Eastern States Exposition is located at 1305 Memorial Avenue in West Springfield.
