TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa State Fair takes place Sept. 26 to Oct. 6, impacting adjoining neighborhoods and streets.

Each year, the city of Tulsa receives complaints and questions on illegal parking on streets, driveways, yards and grass near the fairgrounds.

The City of Tulsa is strictly enforcing parking ordinances during the fair, so residents have access to their homes and driveways; streets are open to emergency vehicles; and to prevent traffic congestion.

Parking is prohibited within 10 feet of fire hydrants, in yards (on lawn/grass), between curbs and sidewalks, on sidewalks, in "TOW AWAY ZONE" areas, in "NO PARKING DURING STATE FAIR DATES" areas.

Illegal parking results in fines ranging from $30 to $50. Illegally parked vehicles can be towed at owner's expense. Illegal parking in driveways, yards, and on grass during the fair can result in fines up to $500 to the property owner.

Parking problems can be reported to the Tulsa Police Department's non-emergency number, (918) 596-9222.

Free parking and shuttles to the fair are provided at: Tulsa Promenade Mall - 4107 S. Yale Ave. (south side of garage); and Nathan Hale High School - 6920 E. 21st St.

Two shuttles are scheduled for the following times and days: 5 p.m. to midnight on Thursday October 3 and Fridays September 27 and October 4; and noon to midnight on Saturdays September 28 and October 5 and Sundays September 29 and October 6.
