College Night at the Du Quoin State Fair


Enjoying the Du Quoin State Fair just got easier, especially for Illinois college students.

State Fair Manager Patrick Buchen announced Thursday College Night will take place on Tuesday, September 1.

A special $10 ticket is being offered to any college student who wants to see American Authors with The Mowgli’s in concert at the Du Quoin State Fair.

Tickets can only be purchased from the Grandstand Box Office (in person or by phone), and are not available on the Ticketmaster website.

Students must present a valid student ID at the time of purchase.

There is no limit to the number of tickets that can be purchased under this special promotion.

“This is an amazing offer for college students. Any seat at the Grandstand to see a big name act like American Authors for just $10,” Assistant State Fair Manager, Norm Hill said. “Du Quoin is just down the road from many of these schools and it truly is one of the most affordable events in the area.”

This year the fair is home to 94 free musical acts, free gate admission, free livestock shows (including harness racing, rodeos), and a free demolition derby. For $7 to park your car, you can enjoy a free day/night of entertainment.
