Toby Keith Offers Special ‘Hump Day’ Ticket Deal

One Day Only Deal to See Music Superstar for Less

Superstar singer Toby Keith is offering his fans a reason to smile on Wednesday.  For one day only – today, from 2 p.m. until midnight – a limited number of tickets to Toby Keith’s Friday, August 23 show at the New York State Fair Grandstand will be discounted.  The special “Hump Day” deal, which the band has offered before as a tribute to Toby’s fans, offers tickets wherever they are still available for $20 each.

Tickets will be available at that price beginning at 2 p.m. at the State Fair Box Office and online at, the Fair’s only official online ticket seller.  The box office closes at 7 p.m. Wednesday, though Etix will continue to offer the “Hump Day” deal through midnight.

There is also a $3.75 per ticket charge on all tickets, whether bought online or at the box office.

Tickets remain available for all Grandstand shows.  Also available at the box office are discount admission tickets, offering 40% savings over the $10 admission price during the Fair.  Today is the last day discounts on admission tickets, Strates Shows FunCards, and the Fair’s Best Bets Bargain Book will be available.

The New York State Fair runs from August 22 – September 2, 2013.  The Fair’s theme is “Sharing the Bounty and Pride of New York.” 

In addition to the annual New York State Fair, the Fairgrounds host dozens of agricultural events throughout the year, including some of the Northeast’s most prestigious horse and livestock shows.

The home of the Great New York State Fair is a 375-acre exhibit and entertainment complex that operates all year. A year-round schedule of events is available on the Fair’s website.  Find The Great New York State Fair on Facebook or follow NYS Fair on Twitter.
