Missouri State Fair > Carnival Deals
The Missouri State Fair (MSF) takes seriously the safety of the fairgoing public. MSF complies with all regulations established by Missouri Department of Public Safety and welcomes their inspectors on the carnival midway. Regulations can be found here.
In addition to meeting required safety regulations, the MSF also requires that a third party, nationally certified carnival ride inspector is on the Fairgrounds throughout the entire Fair overseeing ride safety.
Carnival Midway Hours
The carnival midway opens by noon on weekdays and by 11 a.m. on weekends, weather permitting. The midway closes between 11:30 p.m. and 1:30 a.m., at the Carnival Company’s discretion and depending on weather.
Please note: Height & weight restrictions do apply for certain rides.
