October 5, 1907, was a historic day in the young life of the frontier town of Oklahoma City. All attention that day was focused on the opening ceremony of a new institution located a mile east of downtown – the Oklahoma State Fair. From those humble beginnings in 1907, the Oklahoma State Fair has grown to become one of the premier State Fairs in the nation. We are proud that our family event has been a part of the Oklahoma landscape for more than 100 years – we are looking forward to amusing and entertaining Fairgoers for many more.


Oklahoma State Fair, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation that serves the people of Oklahoma and is dedicated to continuing the organization’s heritage of education, entertainment and economic development through the operation of the OKC Fairgrounds and the annual Oklahoma State Fair.

10:00 AM - 11:59 PM, every day through Sep 26, 2021.
