Fair Entertainment Includes Something for All

Managing Editor

FASCINATING ACTS: Various animal educational and stunt shows will grace the Tulsa State Fair this year, including Welde’s Big Bear Show.

It would be all too easy to get lost in the lengthy list of shows and performers coming to this year’s Tulsa State Fair, Sept. 26-Oct. 6. The number of venues alone could make one’s head spin. It goes without saying, therefore, that ample use of the fair’s itinerary planner that can be accessed through its website or with the smartphone app will prove more than just somewhat useful.

Listed below are the various venues to be found at the fair and a small sampling of what can be enjoyed at each locale:

The Oklahoma Stage and Muscogee (Creek) Nation Stage will offer a variety of musical and cultural offerings—both local and national. Adley Stump, Lee Brice, Sevendust, Casting Crowns and Chevelle are among the long list of national acts to perform on the Oklahoma Stage. Bronkar’s Circus of Sound Show, Turtle Creek Cloggers and the Yuchi/Euchee Language Project will be found on the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Stage.

Reasor’s Culinary Kitchen Stage, located in the River Spirit Expo Lower Level, will showcase cooking demonstrations from local chefs, information sessions with dietitians and more.

Next to Reasor’s Culinary Kitchen Stage, is the Wine Garden, to feature six Oklahoma wineries.

Interaction is the name of the game at the Just for Kids Adventure, in the Central Park Hall. Brain Teasers 2 from the Oregon Museum of Science Industry, Tulsa’s Largest Sandbox, Lego Construction Zone, creative stations including the Make-It and Take-It Zone and Sidewalk Chalk, a milking parlor, community garden, and farmers market will all be found there.

Daily kids’ contests will also be held, with potato sack races, pie eating, tic tac toe, biggest bubble and cookie stacking. Visit www.tulsastatefair.com for the specific days and times.

The International Beer Garden—featuring the Hard Rock Casino Stage—and the Bud Light Tailgate Tent will play host to a number of local and semi-local musicians, such as the Sharon Sharp Band, North Meets South, Lower 40, Travis Kidd and the Full Moon Dueling Piano Show.

Other notable features include the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show, which celebrates 20 years this year. The highly-attended cake event will be held Sept. 28 and 29 on the lower level of the River Spirit Expo. Well-known artists Julia Usher and Bronwen Weber will be on hand to provide entertainment and expertise.

The Steam and Gas Engine Exhibit, presented by the Oklahoma Steam Threshing and Gas Engine Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and education of rural antique farming. The exhibit will showcase a Case Steam Engine and provide interactive corn shelling and rope-making opportunities.
