Kansas Fair warns about unauthorized ticket sales

HUTCHINSON, Kansas — Tickets for the main acts scheduled for the Kansas State Fair go on sale to the public Saturday but officials are warning that some sites are advertising and selling tickets they don’t even have yet.

That means those sites are claiming to have concert tickets that haven’t gone on sale. We spoke to Denny Stoecklein of the state fair, and he tells KSN you could end up with nothing if you try and buy tickets early.

“So we want to caution people about the fact that there could be people out there making these claims and trying to sell tickets that may or may not be able to deliver on.”

Those sites are also charging a lot more for those tickets that aren’t available yet. Prime seating for one country act is being offered for up to $380 while the state fair’s price is $75.
