There is nothing like the fair for hot summer fun and entertainment. The Ozark Empire Fair brings all of that excitement to Springfield, MO each year, and it’s almost time for the fair to come back to town. July 30th to August 8th, the fair will be up and running at the Ozarks Empire Fairgrounds. Wonderful concerts, great rides, competitions, and delicious food are just a few of things you can expect to enjoy at the fair.
This year’s fair performers will be better than ever with thrilling artists like Kellie Pickler, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Finger Eleven scheduled to perform. You will have to plan ahead in order to make sure that you don’t miss your favorite performer’s show. Tickets are sold seperately from general admission to the fair.
Of course, people don’t just go to the fair for the fantastic concerts, they also go because of the great rides and food at the fair. This year, fried twinkies, barbecue, shakes, fried green tomatoes, chicken teriyaki, and other delectable treats will be spread throughout the fair for you to sample. It might be best to get your food after the rides though with rides like the Zyklon Coaster, White Water Log Flume, and The Mega Slide set up for your enjoyment.
Don’t forget that Branson is a just short trip away from Springfield with even more fun activities to enjoy. Choose to lodge in Branson, so you can enjoy some of their great shows and attractions when you aren’t enjoying the fair in Springfield.
