August 23: OneMain Free Admission Day at the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville, KY

By Matt Diehl • August 08, 2017

From August 17-27, the 114th Kentucky State Fair will return to Louisville for 10 days of entertainment, music, agriculture and competitions. As the largest indoor fair in the United States, the event spans 1.2 million square feet inside the Kentucky Exposition Center.1 The Fair averages up to 600,000 visitors per year and proudly celebrates the history, heritage and culture of the Bluegrass State.2

OneMain is excited to participate in this year’s event as the sponsor of OneMain Free Admission Day on Wednesday, August 23. By presenting a voucher at the gate, fairgoers can enter the grounds for free. To obtain a free admission voucher, please review the list of participating branches at the bottom of the page. Nearly 60 OneMain branches will be giving away vouchers from August 1-23, while supplies last.

In addition to Free Admission Day, OneMain will also have a booth at the fair on the 23rd, 25th and 26th. Mark Brackett, District Manager of the Louisville market and OneMain employee of more than eight years, is excited to oversee our onsite operations:

“We have a lot going on at the State Fair. Not only do we sponsor free admission day, but we also plan to have a replica of the #1 OneMain Financial Chevrolet driven by Elliott Sadler at the booth. Volunteers have signed up from all seven Louisville branches, Elizabethtown, Shepherdsville, Shelbyville, Clarksville, IN, and hopefully several more within the state will participate. During the fair, we’re going to give away a lot of OneMain swag as well as a backyard prize package that includes Yeti cooler, Big Green Egg grill, chairs and other tailgate accessories*. This will be our first year as a sponsor and we’re really looking forward to it.”

When asked what makes the State Fair special to the area, Brackett spoke about the sense of community: “It’s a great chance for people to come and enjoy some quality entertainment, good food and catch up with old friends. For us, it’s a great opportunity to meet customers and spread the word about OneMain.”
