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.
PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR THE 2016 CREATIVE ARTS LIVE CONTEST & DEMO SCHEDULE, AND THE ON THE SPOT CONTEST SCHEDULE.
