Opens Thursday, Sept. 26
You know the season has changed when the rides and food vendors roll into town. The Tulsa State Fair is back at Expo Square, 4145 E. 21st St., with more carnival rides, sinfully delicious fair food, exhibits, concerts, corndog-eating contests and plenty of special events to boot. Running Thursday, Sept. 26, through Oct. 6, this year’s offerings are sure to draw the crowds to midtown Tulsa. On top of petting zoos, livestock shows and beer gardens, look for Disney on Ice at the Pavilion (Sept. 26-29), the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show and Grand National Wedding Cake Competition, concerts from Lee Brice and Sevendust and the Picking & Fiddling Championships during the first weekend alone. The second weekend features the PRCA Rodeo & Concerts with Justin Moore and the Josh Abbott Band in the Pavilion (Oct. 4-5) as well as concerts from Chevelle and Bell Biv DeVoe. There’s plenty to catch during the week, too. Fair admission is $6-$10 (children under five free), but Disney on Ice prices are $20-$40. Rodeo prices are $30 each.
