What if there's rain or bad weather? Can I get a refund or a raincheck?
Sorry, we don't offer refunds or rainchecks on tickets. The Fair is open rain or shine, and rides will operate as long as the safety inspectors tell us it's safe to run. The other attractions will also be available: exhibits, food, games, performances, etc.
Don't forget - your tickets are good any day of the fair.
How do I buy concert tickets?
You don't! All concerts are included FREE with your Gate Admission! All seating is first come, first served, so plan to be here early for the best seats. Have fun and enjoy the shows!
I saw someone selling tickets on social media. Is this legit?
Probably not. The only tickets you can truly know are valid are those that you buy on the Coastal Carolina Fair website or at the many Circle K stations in the area. If you purchase tickets any other way, they are likely fraudulent. Updated scanners at our gates now allow us to reject fraudulent tickets. Don't fall victim to a scam! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
What if I buy tickets online but don't have a printer?
Use the link we email you to save the tickets to your mobile device, and we can scan them from there. Keep in mind that you have to pull up each ticket individually, so it will save you time if you can download them to your device before you get here.
Where else can I buy tickets?
You can buy tickets at over 70 Circle K locations! Check out the list of locations at: https://emctickets.com/coastalcarolinaf/
Can't I use my receipt in place of my ticket?
No. If you purchase tickets at a ticket outlet, you need the actual tickets.
We cannot accept a receipt as proof of purchase. Make sure you get your tickets at the time of purchase and handle them as if they were cash.
Are all of the attractions included in my admission ticket or is there an additional cost?
Generally speaking, your admission purchase covers all concerts, attractions and exhibits; however, some other attractions (such as games, exhibits ("world's smallest horse"), etc.) have an additional cost. Rides are not included in the general admission cost. Ride wristbands can be purchased at the gate or in advance online at coastalcarolinafair.org and at 70 area Circle K stores. Ride tickets and wristbands can also be purchased at the Fair at Ride Ticket Booths.
