Oklahoma State Fair kicks off 11 days of entertainment

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._The 109th annual Oklahoma State Fair opened its gates Thursday morning for 11 days of entertainment.

This year’s theme of “Miles of Smiles” will surely come true with fried food, shows, live music, bull riding and Disney on Ice. Roughly one million people visit the Oklahoma State Fair each year where they consume 60,000 gallons of beverages, six miles of hot dogs, 44,246 Indian tacos and 12 tons of turkey legs.

“Since 1907, we have been committed to bringing the best state fair possible to Oklahoma, and we couldn’t be more excited for the fun and memories that are sure to come with our 109th Oklahoma State Fair,” Tim O’Toole, president and CEO, said. “Our main goal is to provide a clean and safe environment where visitors can experience all that the fair has to offer, including both new attractions and fan favorites. This year’s fair is nothing different. We are also proud to offer several can’t-miss performances during Disney On Ice presents Frozen and the PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour. And who can forget the food?”

At the fair this year, you may come across deep-fried banana pudding, bacon covered chocolate chip cookie dough on-a-stick and a rock road caramel apple.

The 2015 Oklahoma State Fair is also bringing back the Oklahoma Frontier Experience, which is a fun and entertaining historical attraction.

Gates open at 8:00 a.m. daily and the fair runs until September 27. You can find a full list of events and show times here.
