People who ride a non-licensed bike or scooter* to the fair can park in one of three FREE bike corrals (See a State Fair map):
The bike corrals are fenced-in areas with bike racks and are monitored by a staff person; they operate much like a coat check. Fairgrounds admission opens at 7 a.m.
*Bikes or scooters with license plates must park in the Motorcycle Lot ($11 each) or in the general parking lots on the fairgrounds ($17).
Guests may also park and lock their bicycles at select Park & Ride lots and take a free bus to and from the fair.
Please note that neither the fair bike corrals nor the Park & Ride lots provide for secure storage of bike helmets.
A lot is available for motorcycles on Como Avenue near the International Institute. Motorcycle parking in this lot is $11; in other State Fair lots, it is $17 (cash or credit/debit).
Hours: 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily (9 p.m. on Labor Day). Fairgrounds admission opens at 7 a.m.
