Here comes the 2018 Oregon Fairs Talent Search.

A statewide talent search that begins at Oregon’s county fairs and culminates at the Oregon State Fair.

Put that stage fright aside and step right up to the microphone at the 2018 Oregon State Fair. That’s the home for the finals of the Oregon Fairs Talent Search. But to compete in Salem, you first must win your county’s local competition. We encourage you to check with your county fair now to see if they are participating. (Participating county fairs will be listed on this page as they come on board.)

The top three finalists from each participating county fair will receive free admission to the Oregon State Fair. Winners at the State Fair level will receive grand prizes.

  • Children’s Division (ages 5 -9)
  • Youth Division (ages 10 – 17)
  • Adult Division (18+)

The finals will happen on August 25th at the State Fair. The Children’s Division takes the stage at 12:15 pm. The Youth Division follows at 1:30 pm. The  Adult Division wraps things up starting at 2:45 pm.
