Get ready to have a blast at The Fourth Annual Pulaski County Fair, taking place this May 17-19, 22-27. Returning to North Little Rock Riverfront Park, the fair is situated alongside the picturesque banks of the Arkansas River, which is a perfect backdrop for the tradition enjoyed by Pulaski County. With nine days of endless fun, food and entertainment for the entire family to enjoy, Oaklawn Hot Springs is the proud presenter of the Pulaski County Fair. 


 “We are excited to be headed into our 4th year of our county fair in the most populous county in the state of Arkansas, Pulaski County,” Susan Erwin Prowse, Pulaski County Fair Marketing Director, said.




Admission to the park is $5 for adults, and children 10-and-under get in for free. Unlimited-ride daily wristbands can be purchased in advance for $22 at North Little Rock Tourism until Friday, May 17, and can be purchased at the fair gates for $30. Guests can also purchase single-ride tickets for $1 each, with each ride requiring 3-7 tickets.
