Welcome

You’re invited to join the OC Fair as we celebrate the spirit, tradition and heritage of being OC’s Fair since 1890. A county fair wouldn’t be complete without the competition pies, quilts, paintings and giant pumpkins. Every year at the OC Fair, the community’s gardeners, bakers and artisans of all ages and types come together to share their talents with more than one million Fair-goers. Enter into a competition to win a coveted blue ribbon or visit one of the OC Fair’s competitive galleries and witness the spirit of competition that is alive and thriving in Orange County.
