OME ABOUT US
OME (Orange Motorsports and Entertainment) was established in 2018 to bring new and exciting live events to The Hudson Valley and Orange County area.
OME is behind the ongoing renovation efforts occurring at the Orange County Fairgrounds and Orange County Fair Speedway, bringing new life into the historic, Middletown, NY facility while maintaining its nostalgic atmosphere born out of a long history with motorsports culture. Starting in 2018, OME has upgraded our stadium with new grandstands, sound systems, bathrooms and more, improving the grounds so patrons can enjoy shows with the best quality sound from numerous comfortable seating options as well as great food and drinks at our multiple concession areas.
For 100 years, The Orange County Fairgrounds has been host to some of the Country’s best racing on our 5/8 mile dirt oval. In addition to maintaining America’s oldest operating dirt track, the fairgrounds have also been one of the Hudson Valley’s premiere destinations for live music. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s the track and its grandstands also served as a concert venue, hosting some of the era’s biggest acts, including: Metallica, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Van Halen, Aerosmith, the Allman Brothers and more. In 2018, modern rock acts like Manchester Orchestra, Bad Flower and AJR graced our stadium stage, as well as legacy acts like Night Ranger, Vince Neil and Southside Johnny.
Orange Motorsports and Entertainment’s roots are in racing and live music, but we truly have something for everyone. Our Middletown, NY fairgrounds facility includes a Motocross track, The Orange Arena Events Center, Music Pavilion and The 31st Lap Tavern. In addition to hosting the annual Orange County Fair, the facility also plays host to Monster Truck events, Car Shows, Food Competitions, Festivals, Conventions, Stunt Shows, Wrestling, MMA and more!
