Topsfield Fair Discounts

Topsfield Fair Discounts

Are you looking for discounts to the 2014 Topsfield Fair?

The Topsfield Fairs kicks off October 3, 2014 to October 13, 2014 in Topsfield, Massachusetts. Weekday tickets are $11 and weekend/holiday tickets are $15 with parking at $10. Children under 8 with an adult are Free.

AAA are selling discount tickets to the Topsfield Fair for $9 (for both weekday and weekend) through the end of business day on Thursday, October 2, 2014. You can buy discount tickets online through AAA, but you do need to pay for shipping which pretty much cancels out the savings, so I would recommend heading to a local AAA branch instead.

I called an AAA branch in the North Shore and they said the tickets were quite popular so once they sell out, they will not be receiving anymore. You may want to call and head over to AAA soon to get the discount tickets if you can.

Also, discount tickets are available through local businesses through October 2, 2014 as well.

Senior Citizens Day is October 6, 2014 with $8 admission for senior citizens 60 and older. Military Day is October 7, 2014 with free admission for active military and their immediate family members with proper identification.
