The All-star action sports lineup at the OC Fair has just been announced. Tickets are currently available online for the event on July 12th through August 11th. If you have a child who loves a good demolition derby, bull riding or Monster Trucks, then these events are perfect for enjoying while visiting the fair this summer.

The first full week of the 2013 OC Fair is dedicated to cowboys and cowgirls alike as bull riding, rodeo and equestrian action takes center stage. The hair-raising Extreme Rodeo pits brave cowboys against raging bulls on Wednesday, July 17, and Friday, July 19. Professional riders put their lives on the line as they try to hang on for eight seconds in Bull Riding on Thursday, July 18 and Saturday, July 20. Closing the week on Sunday, July 21, is Fiesta del Charro, which exhibits the centuries-old Mexican cowboy tradition of performing breathtaking stunts while riding on a horse.

The second week of the 2013 OC Fair invites Fairgoers to witness the raw power of the trucks in the Monster X Tour on its first visit to the OC Fair. Monster and Tuff Trucks crush their way to victory on Wednesday, July 24, Friday, July 26, and Sunday, July 28. Monster Truck action with quad racing can be enjoyed on Thursday, July 25 and Saturday, July 27.

The third week of the 2013 OC Fair showcases the agility of dogs and humans alike. The new Amazing Dobermans show is sure to dazzle with dogs performing mind-blowing tricks Wednesday-Friday, July 31-August 2, with performances at 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. each show date. As a brief interlude to the canine agility excitement, the Ultimate Dodgeball Championships return for a second year on Saturday, August 3. Fabulous canines will take back over on Sunday, August 4 as the OC Police Canine Association Show rolls in to demonstrate the talents of the force’s four-legged officers.

The final week of the 2013 OC Fair is filled with destruction as the demolition derbies come back to town in three different formats. The Orange Crush Demolition Derby, on Wednesday, August 7 and Saturday, August 10, fills the air with the satisfying sounds of crunching metal. The Motor Home Madness Demolition Derby, on Thursday, August 8 and Sunday, August 11, proves to Fairgoers that motorhomes aren’t just for family vacations. Not to be outdone, the women of the Damsels of Destruction Demolition Derby show off their chops on Friday, August 9 as they raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Orange County.
