The Los Angeles County Fair is a two-week agricultural event exhibition which links the State’s agriculture industry, California’s heritage and miscellaneous leisure activities to the public. The September event takes place in Pomona’s 543 acre Fairplex and is operated by the Los Angeles County Fair Association.
People come to the LA County Fair to enjoy traditional Fair food (such as funnel cake and BBQ), cultural activities and popular entertainment. There is an amusement park-feel to this event as carnival booths and rides are aplenty. Exposition Halls that house discovery zones for children involving art, literature and popular culture, as well as historical exhibits catering to adults, are showcased on the fairgrounds. Examples of the latter include the Exposition of Mid-Century Modern Design (interior design, fine art, fashion).
Ample family activities, often offering the escape from the day-to-day routine of urban life, are here: musical entertainment, freestyle motocross, an end-of-day celebratory parade, etc. Permanent interactive exhibits, such as access to the collection of retired train cars, the garden pavilion of Asian-inspired landscaping, and elements of our country’s National Parks wilderness area, are a big draw for all.
Here is a collection of photos from our recent visit to the Los Angeles County Fair.
