State Fair Park Construction

The buildings and grounds at State Fair Park have undergone many renovations over the years to accommodate the associations, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers using our facilities to reach more than two million consumers each year.

Two streets at State Fair Park will soon undergo re-surfacing.  Beginning Tuesday, June 19, Delmar Gardens will be closed between Reno Avenue and Gordon Cooper Boulevard.  Starting Wednesday, July 11, Stagecoach (behind the Bandshell) will be closed between Kiamichi and Land Rush Street.  We anticipate all of this particular construction to be completed by early August.
During the time that Delmar Gardens is being worked on, we encourage you to use Gate 5, at May Avenue and Gordon Cooper Boulevard to access State Fair Park.  
During the construction, vehicles can pass through Delmar Gardens at Black Mesa and also onto Chisholm Trail (the street that goes between the two rows of barns), in front of the Jim Norick Arena.  Please reference the map on our website.
We appreciate your cooperation during this construction period.  We will announce when the repair work has been completed and the streets are re-opened.

Concept of Proposed New Arena at State Fair Park

Bennett Event Center

The Bennett Event Center is NOW OPEN for business. Since opening in January 2017, the following shows have taken place in the BEC: the OKC Home & Garden Show, An Affair of the Heart, the Leake Classic Car Show & Auction, the OKC Auto Show, the RV Super Show and the OKC Farm Show. It offers, among other amenities, 201,000 square-foot of contiguous floor space. Thanks to MAPS 3, the BEC opened debt-free!

The BEC offers current State Fair Park clients the ability to expand and enhance their events, while bringing new national and international shows to Oklahoma. The BEC is the largest event space in Oklahoma City.
