Creative Arts Competitions

With many new contests and all the old favorites, it’s easier than ever to get in on the Creative Arts action at the Oklahoma State Fair! Each year, the Creative Arts Department showcases the work of talented Oklahomans of all ages in crafts like quilting, woodwork, baking, cooking, canning, photography, ceramics and painting.

Competition Schedules

ON THE SPOT CONTESTS: The Oklahoma State Fair returns with this popular concept in Creative Arts competitions! These exciting, “on the spot” contests during the Fair are for both adults and children and do not require contestants to register in advance, so anyone can participate!


Entry Information

Online Registration for the 2016 Fair is NOW CLOSED! Information on Late Entry Registration, with a $10 fee or an onsite registration with a $15 fee, is available in the Competition Guides. 

Take pART in the Fair

Two days of FREE Creative Arts instruction are offered each summer to help participants gain skills that may be used to enter the Creative Arts Competitions at the Oklahoma State Fair. All classes are free but some classes do require a $5 supply kit.
