History

October 5, 1907, was a historic day in the young life of the frontier town of Oklahoma City. All attention that day was focused on the opening ceremony of a new institution located a mile east of downtown – the Oklahoma State Fair.

From those humble beginnings in 1907, the Oklahoma State Fair has grown to become one of the premier State Fairs in the nation. We are proud that our family event has been a part of the Oklahoma landscape for more than 100 years – we are looking forward to amusing and entertaining Fairgoers for many more.
