Carnival Information


Carnival Pass Choices Available

Paradise Amusements is offering fairgoers two different presale opportunities for the Whidbey Island Fair carnival August 15-18 this year.

For intrepid thrillseekers who plan to attend every day, there’s a brand-new Mega Pass, good for one five-hour session all four days of the Fair. In addition, Mega Pass holders will receive five $1 game or food tickets every day. The presale price of $80 represents a whopping 43% savings over the cost of the same package during the Fair.

For those who plan to visit the Fair only one day, single day tickets are $25, good for one five-hour session and include five $1 game tickets.

There are two sessions per day. Hours for the first session are noon to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, with the second session from5 p.m. to closing. Sunday is a single-session day, from noon to 7 p.m. Each ticket is valid for one day of the Fair only.

As in previous years, Paradise Amusements is partnering with the Fair to replenish the Good Cheer food bank. Bring five cans of food, and save $5 off the evening wristband exchange fee for either the Mega Pass or the single day ticket.

Single day presale tickets are available at all island branches of Whidbey Island Bank, Goose Community Grocers in Bayview and at the Fair office from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. There is no limit to the number of presale tickets each person may buy.

Mega Passes are limited, and are only available from the Fair office during the same hours of 11 a.m. to 3 pm. weekdays until sold out.

Both the Mega Pass and the single day presale tickets must be exchanged for wristbands at the carnival ticket booth inside the fairgrounds, and admission to the Fair is not included in the carnival pass pricing.

The presale ends Friday, August 2.
