The Oregon State Fair will adhere to the following admission policy regarding Patrons with disabilities for the 2014 Fair:

Fair patrons needing an attendant or assistant in order to navigate and enjoy the Fairgrounds:  The patron will pay the regular admission price and the attendant will be admitted at no charge.



Parking & Pets

Parking is FREE at the Oregon State Fair!

We want your time here to be enjoyable from the moment you enter our parking lots! That's why our friendly staff in the orange vests are here to direct you when you arrive.
Our ADA parking areas have changed this year. ADA Parking will be in the Pavilion Lot, off of Sunnyview Road. Other lots have limited ADA spaces. Please show the parking attendants your disabled parking pass so we know your needs.
A fair shuttle offers free rides for fair patrons between the Pavilion and South lots from 9 am until half an hour after the last concert of the day.



Oregon State Fair staff will ensure that only service animals will be admitted, according to the criteria specified by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Please CLICK HERE to review the information from ADA to make sure your dog meets the requirements for a service animal under ADA.


ADA Accommodations (Concerts LB Day)

The LB Day Comcast Amphitheatre is accessible by wheelchair.  Wheelchair seating is in front of the RED seating, Sections 1 and 4, and in front of the YELLOW Seating, Sections C and E.

When purchasing concert tickets, please be sure to indicate handicapped seating is needed.  There is limited ADA capacity and not all on-site relocation requests can be accommodated.  Only one ADA individual and one companion are allowed in these areas.


Auto Service - presented by BC Towing

Keys locked in your car?  Dead battery?  No problem.  BC Towing will provide free lock outs and jumpstarts to Fairgoers.  Notify any Oregon State Fair parking attendant for assistance.  Note:  This service is available in Fair-owned parking lots only.





For safety reasons, only service animals are allowed on the Fairgrounds during the Fair, unless otherwise noted for competition purposes. Vehicles will be towed if animals are left in them; this is for their safety due to the August heat.  Any animal permitted on Fairgrounds shall be on a leash not more than six feet long and kept under physical control at all times; the owner is responsible for the animal's behavior and its waste while on the Fairgrounds.  If a pet is found running loose on the Fairgrounds, the animal may be taken to a local animal shelter.
