Butler Amusements is introducing an exciting new way to enjoy the carnival at the 2023 Dixon May Fair.

New this year our carnival provider, Butler Amusements will have kiosks where you can purchase reloadable WRISTBANDS. Kiosks accept Cash, Credit Cards, Debit Cards, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Union Pay.

At each kiosk, you can choose the following options:

Option 1. Redeem advance sales.

Using the tablet, scan the QR code/ Barcode from your carnival advance sale ticket. You are then given the option to purchase tickets to play games. The system prints a physical wristband, you attach it to your wrist, and you are ready to ride!

Option 2. Purchase unlimited ride wristband.

Select on tablet how many unlimited ride wristbands you would like, and if you want to add on any additional tickets to play games. Then each wristband is printed, and you attach it to your wrist. On-site purchases are subject to additional service fees.

Option 3. Only purchase ride/game tickets

You still have the option to only purchase ride/game tickets. Use the tablet to choose how many tickets you would like, and a wristband is printed with those tickets loaded onto it. On-site purchases are subject to additional service fees.

Not clear on how to purchase or redeem? That’s okay!  We will have a Ticket Ambassadors available at each station where there are multiple kiosks,  and they  can assist you with the system.

We also have stand-alone kiosks strategically placed around carnival area where you can check your balance and add more tickets to your wristbands.


Made in Italy, the Footloose is 57 feet high and has 32 seats and is beautifully lit by 1,000 turbo lights.  This ride has state of the art rider seats design that incorporates free-leg seating, a new element in traveling amusement equipment.  There are currently only 4 Footloose rides on traveling carnivals in the United States.  Get ready to get swinging in full circles on the mega-ride!

Monkey Maze Funhouse

Kids will delight in this jungle themed funhouse. It is full of tricks and thrills to keep them coming back to navigate the maze of mirrors, air tricks and spiral slide.
