Discount coupons and tickets are available at several locations, including Rancho San Miguel Market, 1930 Yosemite Parkway, the newest advance discount sales outlet. The discounted carnival ride coupons and admission tickets are available at the store’s inside check booth across from the registers from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through June 14. All sales are cash only.

The deadline to buy advance all-day-ride carnival discount coupons and advance general admission discount tickets is Monday, June 14, at 5 p.m. The fair is June 15-20.
