FULL REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN

The Delaware State Fair will provide full refunds to all ticket buyers who purchased their tickets directly from the Fair. Refunds will follow the purchasers’ original method of payment and will be completed by May 29, 2020.

During the initial phase of the refund process, that is until May 8, 2020, you have the opportunity to turn some or all of your ticket purchase into a charitable contribution, and that amount can be treated as a tax-deductible contribution to The Delaware State Fair, a nonprofit organization.

If you're interested in supporting this charitable cause, complete the online form at https://bit.ly/DSFRefundDonation. We need to receive your instructions by Friday May 8, 2020, otherwise, your refund will be processed at the full amount.

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY REFUND?

The answer to this question depends on (a) whether you bought the tickets directly from the Fair (i.e. through the Fair’s website or through the box office); and (b) if you did purchase from the Fair directly, how did you pay for the tickets (i.e. credit card, check or cash). 

The Fair can only refund the original purchaser. If you received your tickets as a gift, or purchased the tickets from another person or through another website (i.e. Stub Hub, ETickets, Ticketoffices.com, Vivid Seats, Razor Gator, Galaxy, eBay, Craigslist, etc.) you cannot be refunded by the Fair. You must look to the original purchaser or the other website for a refund.

If you purchased your tickets from the Fair directly via the Fair’s website, through the mail (season ticket or box seat purchasers) or in person at the office and paid by CREDIT CARD, a full refund will be issued automatically to the credit card that you used when you bought the tickets.

If you purchased through the mail (season ticket or box seat purchaser) or in person at the office and paid by CHECK OR CASH, the Fair will mail you a refund check. Checks will be sent automatically to the address used at the time of purchase.

No matter how you paid the Fair for your tickets, your refund will be processed automatically. There is no need for you to return your tickets or contact the box office for your refund.

If you decide to participate in the charitable contribution option, your refund less the charitable contribution will come back to you either in the form of a credit to your credit card or a check in the mail depending on the method of your initial payment.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY REFUND?

All refunds will begin processing on Monday May 11, 2020.

Credit card refunds may not appear on your statement until your next credit card billing cycle.

Check refunds should be received by May 29, 2020.
