Rogers County Fair

The 107th Rogers County Fair kicks off next weekend with something for the whole family.

Susan Gebhart, Rogers County Fair Board Vice President, said they are working to diversify activities available at the annual fair.

“Come do what part of the fair floats your boat,” she said.

There will be a 20-minute firework show Thursday night, live music every night, carnival rides, food trucks, and lawn games.

Gebhart said an estimated 20,000 people attend the four-day Rogers County Fair. There are no fees or admission costs.

Gebhart said one of the main focus of the fair is anything local.

“Your favorite food trucks from Food Truck Thursday will be there,” she said.

From local 4H clubs to adult projects at the Rogers County Extension office, there will be a variety of exhibits including jams, jellies, craft projects, agriscience projects, decorative painting, flower arrangements and much more.

Within the livestock show, Gebhart said they show traditional animals such as beef and swine, but have added new exhibits like guinea pigs and rabbits.

“You've got the change with the times,” she said.

Gebhart said the Rogers County Fair is “where tradition meets tomorrow.”

Gebhart said many participants use the Rogers County Fair as practice for larger fairs such as the Tulsa Fair.
