You can go through the expedited line. If you don’t have a wristband or the pass, you will need to go through the metal detectors and have your belongings searched. This is a requirement from the Convention Center. Security at the entrances will not be able to make exceptions for those without a pass or wristband.

Please allow enough time to get through security lines and metal detectors on the morning of the fair, if necessary. *Your bags and boxes may be subject to search upon entering.
