Arizona State Fair’s Mobile App Debuts

In a continued effort to improve the guest experience, the Arizona State Fair launched a new mobile app free for download for iOS and Android. The app offers immediate access to information on attractions, rides, concerts, discounts, and all things Arizona State Fair. Guests can even find community stage schedules and contest winners for the livestock and competitive entries competitions on the app.

One of the great features of the mobile app is its interactive map. Users can filter icons on the map to display only certain categories, including the locations of restrooms and ATMS, stages, or shopping areas. There is also the ability to place personal markers to help guests remember where they parked or assign a family meeting place.

Users looking to plan ahead for their visit will find detailed attraction descriptions, concert times and reserved seating prices, ride information and ticket requirements, information on gate admission discounts, and a schedule of Fair events.

Whether you are planning your Arizona State Fair visit before ever stepping foot on the fairgrounds or navigating through the Midway, the Arizona State Fair app is a tremendous resource for everything taking place across the 18 days of the 2014 season.
