[ARCHIVED] OC Fair Runs Through August 12 - Don't Miss Summer's Best Party

OC Fair2

The 128th annual OC Fair opens July 13 and runs through Aug. 12. The 2018 OC Fair invites every fairgoer to "Free Your Inner Farmer" - wave your hat in the air and celebrate the agricultural heritage with OC style. You can even wear overalls and get in free until 3 p.m. on Thursdays - there are deals all 23 days of the Fair. There are $2 discount coupons at City facilities.


NEW THIS YEAR

Fair food – Fairgoers who have been saving up calories for their summer Fair treats can choose from truffle potato tots, spaghetti donuts, fried filet mignon on a stick, spicy fried cheese curds, caramel crack fries, ramen burritos, fried apple tacos and hot Cheetoes on everything.

Gigantic farmers: Bounty of the County – Three 16-foot-tall murals by artist John Cerney honoring local farmers and ranchers will greet fairgoers at the three main gates of the OC Fair. Plus, human-scale displays showcasing California's own farm stars share video stories with guests at the click of an app.

Craft Bar – Farm-to-bar mocktails (and cocktails after dark) will include hand-picked garden ingredients sure to refresh and inspire and featuring locally crafted spirits from San Clemente's Drift Distillery.

Daredevils & Wheels – A wild, live-action stunt show at Action Sports Arena July 18-22, this outrageous spectacle features the Globe of Death steel ball, Vortex of Doom aerial platform raceway and a motorcycle high wire.

Peterson Farm Brothers – Real-life singing Kansas farmers turned YouTube sensations will give Fair guests a unique view of real life on a farm in 2018 - and you can even sing along, July 21-22.

Bravemind exhibit at Heroes Hall – This new exhibition shows how a virtual reality technology from USC is helping veterans overcome PTSD in the real world.

Culinary Crawl – This guided tour takes fairgoers through a mini version of OC's curated culinary offerings, from a Patisserie to a Charcuterie, featuring insider info and tastings. Free tours will be held four times daily.

Selfie pop-up museum – Stay tuned for details on this only-at-the-OC-Fair pop-up selfie experience that will celebrate the unique and Instagram-worthy fun of the Fair. My Fair Selfie is set to open on July 20.
