How to get into the OC Fair for free!

One of our favorite times of summer in Southern California is when the Orange County Fair comes to town! This year it goes from July 12th-August 11th. Besides the delicious fried foods, live music, and carnival rides, you can also get in for free! Keep reading to learn how to score free tickets.

  • FJ Tip #1: Go to opening day
  • Opening day is July 12th and if you enter the fair from 12-3pm on this day, you can get free general admission and parking. Arrive early to get the most out of your OC Fair experience!

  • FJ Tip #2: Donate
  • The OC Fair loves giving back and they love rewarding visitors for doing so. Every Wednesday is a “We Care Wednesday”. They have a list of specified items to donate each Wednesday, in exchange for free general admission and one carnival ride per person. Offer is only valid 12-3pm! Some donations they will hold include bringing 5 cans of food on July 24th or 3 new/gently used books on July 31st for free admission. Check the list to make sure your items qualify!

  • FJ Tip #3: Thursdays
  • Every Thursday at the OC Fair is kids’ day. Children 12 and younger receive free admission to the fair all Thursday long!

  • FJ Tip #4: Active- Duty Military and Veterans
  • Just like Fletcher Jones Motorcars, the OC Fair is grateful to those who have served or are currently doing so. At the OC Fair, active-duty military and veterans receive free OC Fair admission all 23 days. In addition, they are also eligible to receive half-priced general admission tickets for friends and family. Military ID is required for those who partake in this savings and half priced tickets are limited to 6.

  • FJ Tip #5: Website Discounts
  • While there are many great ways to receive free tickets, the OC Fair offers even more ways to get discounted tickets! Just a few ways to get discounts are below! Check out their website for a full list.
    – $5 senior (60+) admissions on Fridays plus free ferris wheel and merry go rides
