Part of our BIG FAIR FUN is our spectacular Carnival Midway. With the rides and the games, there's something for all ages! The Carnival will open at Noon each day of the Fair and remain open until 12 AM. Our Unlimited Ride Wristband lets you ride as many rides as you can fit in until we close on the day you visit the Fair (the wristband is for any single day at our Fair, but not multiple days and it DOES NOT INCLUDE THE GAMES IN THE CARNIVAL MIDWAY AREA.) The online advance discount sale of the Unlimited Ride Wristbands for only $28.00 started at 10 AM on April 13, 2018 and will run through Midnight on Wednesday, July 25, 2018. On July 26 and 27, 2018, the wristband price will be $30.00 each, and on Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29, 2018, the price will be $35.00 each and while the Fair is underway July 26-29, 2018 you will only be able to buy the wristbands upon arriving at the Fair at one of the ticket booths within the Carnival Midway.

Here are some things to keep in mind:
  • It is ALWAYS up to the Ride Operator to ultimately decide if it is safe for you to ride.
  • No casts, pregnant persons, or intoxicated individuals are allowed on rides.
  • Be aware that all rides have height requirements that are stipulated by the ride manufacturer. If an Unlimited Ride Wristband is purchased for a patron who is not at least 36 inches tall, keep in mind it may not be a good value. No one under 36" in height can ride any of the carnival rides/attractions. Infants are not allowed on any ride or attraction.
  • All riders must have either an Unlimited Ride Wristband or the correct number of ride tickets to ride or enter the attractions.
  • The rides and attractions will require 3 to 5 tickets per person if you do not have an Unlimited Ride Wristband.
  • Individual ride tickets are $1 each, $25 or 27 tickets, $70 for 80 tickets, and $100 for 120 tickets.
  • The Carnival Midway WILL accept credit and debit cards at all of the ticket sales points, and this includes Visa, MasterCard, and Discover Card.
  • NEW THIS YEAR: Butler Amusements is introducing an exciting new way to enjoy the carnival at the 2018 Washington County Fair. Customers have the option of purchasing smart cards at our ticket boxes or at our new self serve kiosks. Choose the ticket package you want, pay using cash, credit or debit, receive a smart card with all of your tickets, keep your receipt in a safe place, and use the smart card to ride rides AND play games. You can refill your smart card at any ticket box or self serve kiosk. You can also track where you used your tickets and check your balance Unlimited ride wristbands still work as they always have: Purchase at a Carnival Ticket Box (keep your receipt in a safe place) and ride all the rides you want that day (THE PLAYING OF GAMES IS NOT INCLUDED WITH THE WRISTBAND. IT IS FOR RIDES ONLY.)
