Starts Thursday, Sept. 25
For 11 days, Expo Square will be held the hostage of festivities, curiosities and deep-fried goodness. We never said it went unwillingly. The Tulsa State Fair opens Thursday, Sept. 25, at 5 p.m. with carnival rides, concerts, fair food vendors and exhibits from heirloom vegetables to original artwork and crafts. The first weekend of the fair brings the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show (Friday and Saturday), Disney On Ice (Thursday-Sunday), the Oklahoma State Picking & Fiddling Championships (Saturday-Sunday), the Miss Tulsa State Fair Pageant (Thursday) and concerts from rising acts All That Remains, Thomas Rhett and others. Look for culinary shows, petting zoos and other hallmark attractions throughout the fair, which concludes Oct. 5. General admission to the Tulsa State Fair is $6-$10, but some events require separate tickets for entry. Expo Square is located at 4145 E. 21st St., Tulsa.
