120 Ticket Pack - $50

Blast Pass: The Blast Pass gets you an unlimited carnival ride wristband that lets you ride all day on any single day at the 2023 Oregon State Fair. Plus, you get three free games and one medium drink from carnival concessions. Wristbands are good until 10:00 pm on the day of use and must be redeemed by 8:00 pm.
