The Oklahoma County Free Fair hits its 103 year
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KOKH) This year marks the 103rd year of the annual Oklahoma County Free Fair. The Free Fair, taking place at the Oklahoma State Fair Park August 24-26 will have competitions, special activities, and a horse show. The free fair allows Oklahoma County residents the opportunity to show the community their skills, talents and creativity.
Every exhibit at the Free Fair must have been made, grown, or constructed during the past year unless otherwise noted in the official fair book. The fair book can be found online at http://oces.okstate.edu/oklahoma or can be picked up at the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Center on N.E. 63rd Street in Oklahoma City.
The best part about this century old tradition is that there is no fee to enter the county fair or to take part in any of the special contests or events. On Friday, August 25th, the Centennial Building is open from 2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. so exhibits can be viewed after judging. That evening, starting at 6:30 p.m. in Barn 8, the Horse Show is scheduled and continues Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. and going throughout the day. On Saturday, August 26th, at the Centennial Building the Oklahoma County 4-H will have their annual kick off with the Family Fun Indoor Carnival.
