The Arizona State Fair released its final numbers for the 2023 event on Wednesday, and it's clear: A lot of people had fun at the fair this year.
The 139th Arizona State Fair welcomed 1,445,194 guests through the gates of the Arizona State Fairgrounds from Sept. 22 to Oct. 29. This surpasses the attendance of 2022, which was 1,384,269.
Folks who played the carnival games won more than 204,000 plush toys, and over 80,000 roasted turkey legs were sold. The La Grande Wheel, the fair's most popular ride, went for a spin 5,092 times, or 515 miles, approximately the same distance from Phoenix to Yosemite National Park.
