One of the coolest aspects of the Oregon State Fair—the blending of the traditional with the cutting edge—happens in the Creative Living Department. That’s where you’ll discover displays, exhibits, demonstrations, and competitions that cover the full spectrum of life in Oregon. The Creative Living team’s constant goal is to strike a balance between tradition and innovation…all for the benefit of Oregonians. This department of the Oregon State Fair features many of those classic competitions we all know so well. But these days there is equal emphasis on new and truly engaging topics, each of which reflect life in Oregon. We constantly strive for a balance between traditions and innovations.

We have a multitude of divisions to compete in this year - click on your interest to get started!
