Those who purchased tickets via credit card after June 10th will have their credit card charges reversed before September 23rd by Midwestix, the fair's ticketing partner. 

Those who purchased tickets by check or cash should mail their Foreigner Concert tickets along with a return address to "Ticket Refund, Clay County Fair, P.O. Box 527, Spencer, Ia. 51301 prior to October 15th. 

The fair says it does NOT offer refunds for gate admission.
