Oakland County Fair in Davisburg

The much-loved family event returns to the Oakland County Fairgrounds July 4-13, 2014 with more action-packed activities and attractions for the whole family

It's common knowledge that most kids love zoo animals, carnival rides and chocolate milk. But come July 4-13, 2014, you can put all three together and have one exciting trip to the Oakland County Fair at the County Fairgrounds in Davisburg.

With 10 days full of demolition derbies, monster truck rides and cowboy shootouts, there are bound to be some crazy stunts for you to enjoy. But get ready to have some of your own wild fun when you go from one carnival ride to another all day long.

Your family can also take part in many activities and contests all day at the fair. Join in for the kids spaghetti eating contest on Monday, Home Depot kids workshop on Tuesday, and even a frog-jumping contest on Wednesday. And if you are daring enough, stick around another day and take a chance with the dunk tank on Thursday.

Along with a pirate lunch and princess tea, there also will be a dog show, sheep show and antique fire truck show for every member of your family to enjoy. And don't miss the live animal auction, big fireworks display and many grand stand events to keep the fun going all weekend.
