The Community Entertainment application for the 2018 Fair will be available on November 6, 2017.
All applications must be completed online. Applications that are faxed, walked in, mailed or e-mailed will NOT be accepted.
Applications will be accepted beginning Monday, November 6, 2017 through 5 p.m. (PST) on Friday, March 2, 2018. Applications submitted after this date will automatically be placed on the waitlist.
Due to the volume of submissions we receive, not all applicants will be accommodated. Submission of an application is for consideration only and a performance date or time is not guaranteed. Previous performances at the OC Fair do not guarantee stage time in 2018. Each application for performance time during the Fair is given consideration by the Community Entertainment Department on the following basis:
- Completed application received by the posted deadline
- Performer availability during available dates and times.
- Overall appeal and unique nature of the performance
- Appropriateness of the performance for the OC Fair audience
- For returning applicants, past performance and adherence to OC Fair policies and procedures
Please do not call or email to check on your booking status. We receive a high volume of requests and will respond when information is available. If your availability or any information changes after submitting your application, please notify the Community Entertainment Department immediately.
In May, all selected performers and performance groups will be contacted via email. Applications received by the deadline that are not selected for a performance slot will automatically be placed on the waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis and will be contact directly if a performance slot is vacated.
All selected applicants will be required to conduct a Megan’s Law screening for all performers and crew members.
