If you hope to avoid the processing fees associated with online purchases, you can visit the Ranch & Home location in Kennewick (845 N Columbia Center Blvd) or the Fair Office in Pasco (812 W Washington St) to buy tickets in person.

Tickets cost $20 for anyone age 13 and older and $15 for a youth ticket (children between the ages of six and 15). Children age five and under are eligible to visit the event for free so long as they share a seat with their accompanying adult. If your child needs their own seat, you’re advised to simply purchase a youth ticket.

According to Benton Franklin Fair coordinators, this year’s derby will feature a pre-show concert for your entertainment along with added food options for the main event.
