Deerfield Fairgrounds


You can get your General Admission Tickets (both over and under 18 years of age) and Inside Parking Pass here! Please be aware that those using the FREE under 18 tickets may be required to show ID at the gate.

NOTE 1: This registration system treats everything as a “space”; tickets, parking passes, tables, chairs, spaces, electricity charge.  EVERYTHING is a “space”.  For example, if you sign up for 2 General Admission Tickets and 1 Inside Parking Pass, your receipt will read 3 “spaces”.

NOTE 2: Tickets purchased on-line may be picked up at the gate beginning on Friday morning at 0900.  Please present your receipt.  We will have a list of ticket purchases.  Positive ID may be required. No tickets will be mailed.

The Pay With option at the bottom of the page allows two different payment methods. The default selection is Paypal. The other option is Pay at NEAR-Fest. The Pay at NEAR-Fest option is used for Vendors only. If you plan to Pay at NEAR-Fest please don’t use this system and just purchase your tickets and passes at the gate. Transactions where General Admission tickets are not paid for will be deleted.

Certain other fees apply in some cases, particularly regarding overnight stays and camping. These fees are collected by the Deerfield Fair Association and cannot be paid in advance. Please click here for more information.

If you have used this system previously you can login using your login name and password. If you lost or forgot your login information please use the Lost Your Password? link below to reset your password. You will need to use either your login name or email address to reset your password.


We’ll see you at the ‘Fest!!
