OC Fair We Care Wednesday Invitation card with events listed

The Orange County Fair has begun! You can get into the fair for FREE this year simply by giving back to your local community!

As part of #WeCareWednesday, the OC Fair is partnering with several Orange County nonprofit organizations, including Share our Shelves, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, OC Food Bank, Think Together and Goodwill of Orange County, for themed donation days.

Every Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., bring specific items for donation and receive admission to the fair plus one free carnival ride ticket. Enjoy fun-filled days of rides, games, and food – all while being charitable and contributing to great causes that make a difference right here in our communities! Check out the weekly themes below and how you can get in on the good.
