Salem, Oregon Weekend Events-Marion County Fair

It finally looks like Summer is here for Salem, Oregon, and what could be more fun than going to the fair?  In Salem we are lucky to have two fairs each year.  One is the Marion County Fair and the other is the Oregon State Fair which begins in late August.    This year’s fair runs from July 7-10 and the Oregon State Fairgrounds.  Hours are:

Thursday:  10 am to 10 pm

Friday and Saturday:  10 am to 11 pm

Saturday:  10 am to 6 pm

This year entry will cost you $7.50 for adults and $3.75 for children 6-11.   There are three concerts this year that are $20 for reserved seating or free to those that want to bring a blanket and sit on the ground.   The acts include Tracy Lawrence,  Australia’s Little River Band, and Radio Disney Concert.   There are also some specials on ride bracelets and you will find more information on those specials on the Marion County Fair’s website.
