In an effort to engage the community more than ever before, the Central Florida Fair has continued to offer Seminole and Orange County students a free ticket to the Fair through participating schools. So far, we have donated in excess of 102,000 student tickets valued over $500,000! Moreover, the Fair has once again created a website where they may purchase additional discounted tickets; 10% of the sales will be donated back to the individual participating schools. In addition to those savings, the Fair is introducing College Night for students with their Student ID and “Out and About,” an evening of celebrating family diversity in the community!
