    possible after submission.

There is a non-refundable application fee of $50.
Acceptable credit cards are AMEX, Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Debit cards issued by major banks are also accepted.

For security purposes, the site times out after 15 minutes.

  1. Plan and prepare: to complete the application in one sitting. Leaving the site before completion will lock your account leaving it inaccessible.
  2. Have information readily available: We do not know your username or password used last year. Contacts and references, numbers, emails; business licenses, resale numbers; product lists, photos; menus (Concessions); pricing (lead generating must indicate a cost range); method of payment.
  3. A maximum of four photos can be uploaded to the application. If you experience difficulty uploading photos or menus, email them to vendors@ocfair.com

To apply, check the “I Agree” box, then click “Create Account”.  The email address used will become your username. Record that and the password created.

If you want to retain a copy of your application, print each screen before proceeding to the next.

The application contains required fields meaning information must be entered in order to continue. A box will pop up noting incomplete fields which must be filled in order to advance to the next page.

The final screen is the payment module. Upon completing and submitting payment (click only once and be patient; this could take several seconds). When the credit card transaction is completed, you will receive an acknowledgement that your application submitted successfully.
