Take a Spin at the Tulsa State Fair

Food, entertainment and agriculture collide at the Tulsa State Fair.  The annual event opens at 5pm on September 28th.  Family fun is the goal and the fair has something for everyone!

Corndogs, Pineapple Whip and Lemonade.  What’s your favorite fair food?  Is it Fire Roasted Corn on the Cob or a Deep Fried Oreo?  What about an Indian Taco or Ribbon Fries?  Food is king at fairs across the country and Tulsa’s fair is no different.  While no one should miss out on their favorite traditional fare, the new, creative (sometimes peculiar) and delicious foods steal the spotlight.  This year, as you stroll through the River Spirit Expo or cruise down the midway make sure to try the new Cinnamon Roll Sundae or Bacon Funnel Cake. 


Don't miss the talented Zuma Zuma Acrobats on the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Stage at the Tulsa State Fair!

Now that you have found a light snack, grab a seat and enjoy one of the many free shows.  Like horses? We have Dark Knight Jousting.  Looking for acrobats?  Acrodunk on the midway or Zuma Zuma Acrobats on the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Stage.  Love Dogs?  All-Star Stunt Dog Challenge.  If you want to be part of the action, visit the NCAA Spirit of Champions Interactive Zone. 


Dark Knight Jousting is just one of the many family-friendly attractions at the Tulsa State Fair!


Go, Dog. Go! 

The Just for Kids Adventure, located in Central Park Hall, features interactive and educational exhibits.  Your family won’t want to miss Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo presents “Dinosaurs”, the Southwest Dairy Milking Parlor or the Hippity Hop Horse Races.  Additional activities include Innovation Station sponsored by Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance, Make It & Take It, Creative Your Own Garden and Tulsa’s Largest Sandbox.

Last year, North American Midway became the midway service provider.  Their service brought over 60 rides and featured 11 new rides.  They will return in 2017, with additional new rides and games, and you won’t want to miss your chance to ride the iconic Sky Ride, which only operates during the 11 days of the fair. 

The Tulsa State Fair’s premier livestock shows will feature the best of the best from all 77 counties of Oklahoma and some out of state exhibitors.  Over 12,000 animals will be onsite throughout the fair!  Horses, cattle, sheep and goats are just a few of the livestock animals you will be able to watch.  Stop by the Super Duty Barn to visit the Petting Zoo and Birthing Center, where you will find a variety of adorable farm animals.  For guests who would like to learn more, the Aglahoma Exhibit will feature fun facts about our state and Trough Talk presentations. 

Advance tickets are on sale now through September 25, 4 tickets for only $24.  Please join us September 28 through October 8 for the 2017 Tulsa State Fair
