The Rogers County Free Fair is a celebration to signal the transition from summer to fall. A Rogers County tradition since 1914, this free fair will take you back to simpler times while you browse through handcrafted products, arts, cooking, animal exhibits, horticulture, and more. Attend a livestock show, browse numerous vendors, and bring the kids to the fair’s popular children’s area, featuring plenty of fun activities. Climb aboard a thrilling midway ride and dine delightfully on plenty of fair foods. Are you imagining the smells of kettle corn and turkey legs lingering in the air?

There will be lots to see and do!

“We will have over 40 indoor vendors exhibiting both inside and outside of the Expo Center. The biggest change to our schedule is that this year’s carnival rides will be open longer with two sessions on Sunday instead of just one,” says Wendy Woody, Co-Manager of the Rogers County Fair.
