altThe Oakland County Fair at Springfield Oaks County Park in Davisburg has been extended to 10 days, beginning 4 p.m. on July 4 through 9 p.m. on July 14.

Click here for pics and photos in our Oakland County Fair Photo Gallery from previous OC Fair visits.

During the 10-day Oakland County Fair, there will be a midway with carnival rides, free circus, free concerts, monster trucks, a demolition derby and exhibits ranging from aerospace to woodworking. Visitors can stroll through many barns to see horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, poultry, dogs, cats, rabbits and even newborn animals in the Miracle of Birth Barn, a fairgoer favorite.

There will be a large variety of favorite fair foods and space for families to pack a picnic and eat in the comfort of an activity pavilion.

“The Oakland County Fair has become a highly anticipated event, attracting people from across metro Detroit, as well as throughout the state,” Oakland County Parks and Recreation Executive Officer Dan Stencil said. “Oakland County and Parks and Recreation is very excited to be a presenting sponsor of the fair this year.”
