NM State Fair Rodeo-Concerts and Free Fair Admission

New Mexico State Fair is just around the corner, from September 12 to 23, 2012, with the NM State Fair Parade (my favorite part of the whole affair!) on Saturday September 15.

But I’m here to tell you that if you’re buying tickets for the NM State Fair Rodeo-Concerts, grab them now!  Rodeo-Concerts tickets purchased by August 31 include free admission to the State Fair too, valid for the day of the concert.  That saves you $10 on the regular adult admission. State Fair admission for seniors (62+) and kids aged 6-12 will be $7 in 2012.

The Rodeo-Concerts at Tingley Coliseum combine the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association sanctioned rodeo with a different music concert each night. Ticket prices are $19, $28 or $39, depending on the seats.  That’s already a good deal for the evening’s entertainment. Throw in free State Fair admission and it’s even more likely to please the cowboys (and gals)!

The Rodeo-Concerts mainly start at 7 pm and performers this year are:

  • Poco/Firefall on September 18
  • Marty Stuart on September 19
  • Jake Owen on September 20
  • Eddie Money on September 21
  • Jerrod Niemann on September 22
  • Michael Jackson Tribute Laser Spectacular on September 23 – this one starts at 2 pm.

Buy New Mexico State Fair Rodeo-Concert tickets from the EXPO New Mexico box office or from Ticketmaster through August 31 to get free gate admission to the NM State Fair too. (This TicketMaster link takes you directly to all shows at Tingley Coliseum, including the NM State Fair PRCA Rodeo concerts.) After that, you’re paying your own way into the State Fair!
