What is the difference between General Admission and VIP Tickets?
NEW FOR 2019.  We are making a limited number of premium VIP tickets available for purchase in the reserved section in front of the Fallfest stage. In the past, you could only win these tickets. General admission tickets are $10 per person for adults and children ages 6 & up.  Children 5 & under do not need a ticket if you are sitting in the General Admission sections. If you would like to upgrade to VIP seating, children and adults of all ages will each need to purchase an upgraded ticket. The upgraded ticket gets you into the reserved upfront section but does not include a designated seat.  You should still bring your own blankets and/or chairs. VIP Tickets are now sold out.

You can also win upgraded seats by visiting select sponsor booths at Fallfest or listening to I-105 WIOV between now and October 13th to find out how!  More info can be found on our Contests & Upgrades page
