Oak Ridge Ranch Amusements was founded in Freeport, Illinois. For over twenty years, the Oak Ridge Ranch organization has provided countless family-oriented, fun-filled fairs and festival events throughout Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

A hallmark of Oak Ridge Ranch Amusements is the close relationships established over the years with many fine people in the amusement business and the wonderful clients we have served. Without their encouragement and confidence in our operation we could not have succeeded in consistently providing high quality events each year.

 Set Up

The Oak Ridge Ranch management team can quickly envision how an event should be laid out depending on the specific venue.

Park programs and special events provide a variety of experiences and learning opportunities to promote healthy,positive interactions between people and animals.

We have teamed up with Oak Ranch Amusements many times to provide a variety of concession trailers, inflatables, & games at various events at Lockwood Park.  Their expertise has helped Lockwood Park special events continue to grow as each year we work together to enhance the entertainment and food offerings.  The Oak Ridge Ranch team has also provided many new ways to make corporate parties at Lockwood Park unique and memorable.” ​

“Life Church has been partnering with Oak Ridge Ranch Amusements for the past several years for our Annual Harvest Festival.  Each year, we looking forward to having Dave and his crew at our event.  

They are a very friendly staff who truly enjoys what they do.  They provide excellent service with quality rides and games.  Dave is knowledgeable in event setup and has helped us each year as our grounds have changed.

I encourage you to give Dave and his staff a call – they will accommodate you with the utmost professionalism.”
