Josh Enlow, president of the Creek County Fair board, welcomes you and your family to join the fun September 18-21.
It’s time again for the Creek County Free Fair! Set for September 18 through 21, the annual fair is sure to please the masses with a variety of live musical entertainment, rodeos, carnival rides, mouthwatering food, a kids’ zone and more. Mark your calendars – this is a perfect opportunity to spend some fun quality time with family and friends.
The Creek County Fair kicks off Thursday the 18th. The first evening of the fair will feature the ACRA and CRRA sanctioned rodeo, hosted by Warren Rodeo Company.
Friday’s events include the Jr. Ranch Rodeo for 4-H and Ranch Rodeo kids, which has been a successful staple of the fair for the past several years, as well as top musical acts South 40 and Nick Gibson. “Nick Gibson was a recent opening act for Kenny Chesney,” says Josh Enlow, president of the fair board. “We’ve really stepped up the musical entertainment lineup this year.”
Both Friday and Saturday, children can enjoy the air-conditioned kids’ zone, where they will be entertained with face painting, arts & crafts, a petting zoo and more.
Saturday’s lineup offers livestock shows, including goats, sheep, rabbits, chickens, swine and cattle, the JBR Rough Stock Rodeo, and three concerts. Featured musicians are John Riley and the Lighthorsemen, Level Route and Spur 503.
On Sunday, fairgoers can enjoy the open horse show, followed by a demonstration clinic led by Travis Loewen on how to break and train your horse. The Miss Creek County Scholarship pageant will also be held, with the winner moving on to vie for the title of Miss Oklahoma. Jackson & Scroggs close out the fair with a concert.
The events at the Creek County Fair – with the exception of the rodeos – are free. Parking and gate admission are also free of charge, so don’t miss out on all the thrills September 18 through 21 at the Creek County Fairgrounds, located just off the Sapulpa/ Kellyville exit of the I-44 Turner Turnpike and beside Highway 66.
