The 2010 OC Fair Starts Today

Jul 16, 2010 by Lisa Newton

If you live in Orange County, and even Los Angeles or San Diego, put your “Entertainment Hat” on and get ready to go to the Fair.

Opening today, the 2010 OC Fair is guaranteed to satiate everyone’s fun factor until next year!

Among the amusements and festivities are concerts, amusement rides, food, special events, and everything else and more, that one could expect from a County Fair.

This year’s OC Fair’s theme is “The Beat Goes On,” and I’m sure the 1,000,000 plus people who attended last year’s OC Fair will attest to that.

On any given day, you can see Russell Brothers Circus, All Alaskan Racing Pigs, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and who knows what else. It’s a fair, people, so it’s everything and anything.

Just to wet your whistle:

Admission:

General (13-59) $10

Seniors (60+) $7

Children (6-12) $5

Children under 6 Free every day

But the best way to attend this year’s festivities is to get an adult Super Pass for only $30.00, which provides unlimited access for all 23 days of the Fair. Now that’s a bargain and it’s only one of the perks included when you purchase a Super Pass. There’s more.

Included are several special promotion days, including the WE CARE WEDNESDAYS, on July 21st from 12:00-6:00pm.

Sponsored by 89.3 FM KPCC, if you bring 5 canned food items, you get one free admission and one carnival ride per person.

Featured this year at the OC Fair will be a 4 acre demonstration farm titled Centennial Farm, with the goal to educate the public about agriculture and its importance in our daily lives. Centennial Farm is home to fruit and vegetable gardens, various livestock, and the Millennium Barn. Children and adults can view pigs, chickens, cattle, goats, an organic garden, and a Floral Clock while strolling though its gardens.

For all of you who love to go to the fair to enjoy its food, including you Foodies out there, at the Exhibit Promenade, the OC Fair is hosting The Art of Food & Food as Art attraction.

It will have a delicious and amazing culinary exhibit with an artful flair, and will include competitions, contests & and demonstrations–from ice carving, food sculpting and the crowd pleasing traditional pie eating contests.

If you’re into concerts, there are both paid events and free stage events. It just depends on what you want to do.

How about action sports? The 2010 OC Fair has those, too.

Of course, what county fair would be complete without a carnival?

Here’s the scoop on the 2010 OC Fair Carnival:

Every Wednesday and Thursday, you can purchase $25 Unlimited Ride Wristbands and $1 Games. It’s on sale until 5:00pm and valid until 8:00pm.

Can’t go on Wednesday or Thursday, how about going to the OC Fair on Friday?

$1 Rides Every Friday are valid until 7:00pm, but you must purchase a Fun Pass, which is available in $5, $20, $50 and $100 packages.

Don’t forget, the 2010 OC Fair, located at 88 Fair Dr. in Costa Mesa, is totally family friendly with animals galore, craft exhibits, gardening demonstrations, circus performers, and everything else listed above and more.
