The 2013 Arizona State Fair will open Oct. 11 for 18 days of rides, attractions, exhibits and — of course — food. Tickets for reserved seating at fair concerts go on sale Saturday, Sept. 7.

New attractions this year are Star Trek: The Exhibition, The Great American Duck Race, Tyzen the Hypnotist, Secret Circus and Cartoon Alley demonstrations. There are also six new Midway rides.

In addition, two new respite areas will debut: The Hangout for adults and Play Space, featuring indoor activities for kids 8 and younger.

Entertainers from multiple genres will play the Arizona State Fair Concert Series. This year’s line-up includes Jerry Lewis, Trace Adkins, ZZ TOP, The Wanted, Prince Royce, and Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop Lion, Alabama Shakes, Zendaya, Billy Currington, Megadeth, Old School Jam, and the Kidz Bop Kids first live concert.

The 129th annual fair, which will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, runs through Nov. 3 at 19th Avenue and McDowell Road in Phoenix. Additional information is at
