The OC Fair has invited all 34 Orange County cities to participate in a Community Flag Salute. On Garden Grove’s day, Wednesday, August 9, Mayor Steve Jones and City Council members will lead fairgoers in singing the National Anthem at 12:30 p.m.

The OC Fair runs from Friday, July 14 to Sunday, August 13.

New to the OC Fair & Event Center is the Heroes Hall. Housed in a Santa Ana Army Air Base, the Heroes Hall consists of two exhibition floors of honoring Orange County veterans, their sacrifices, and to educate the community. In Heroes Hall, the Medal of Honor Plaza pays tribute to veterans who received the highest honors from the United States. There are 28 plaques, including a plaque of Tibor Rubin, a Garden Grove resident and a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, who passed away in 2015.

Two-dollar discount admission coupons are available, courtesy of the OC Fair. Coupons can be picked up on the first floor of Garden Grove City Hall, at 11222 Acacia Parkway. The coupon may be used any day that the fair is open.

The OC Fair is located at 88 Fair Drive in Costa Mesa. OC Fair hours are Wednesday through Friday, from 12:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m., and Saturday through Sunday, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.
