The LA County Fair, one of the largest fairs in the country, is celebrating their 93rd year!  Gates opened up this past weekend and remain open until September 27th.


Known as a trendsetter and entertainment mecca for fair goers, the LA County fair offers culinary delights, favorite bands of multiple music eras, fascinating art exhibits, relaxing wine-tasting, a frontier of exhilarating rides, unique exhibits, and even a illuminated hillside of worldwide landmarks.

Fried peanut butter covered pickles, anyone?

Love deep-fried Twinkies, Oreos, cheesecake, or perhaps a double-decker hamburger with Krispy Kreme buns?  This is the place to be!

There are so many attractions and things to see, one day isn't enough.  Some attractions not to miss...

Great Concerts

ZZ Tjop

Every year the LA County Fair signs on a great  variety of music acts.  Highlights include The Beach Boys, For King and Country, Kool and the Gang, ZZ Top, Justin Moore, Chicago and more!

Luminasia was definitely a highlight for our family.  The fairgrounds has a grassy hillside speckled with trees that's the perfect setting for the Luminasia exhibit.  Luminasia consists of 50+ glowing lighted structures resembling famous landmarks from around the world.  There is an extra $5 entrance fee, but it's a real delight.

As a tech lover, I really enjoyed Ponology, a new interactive attraction design to enlighten and educate visitors on technological advances inspired by our movies, music, comic books, books,and TV shows.

The Rides

We got a $50 wristband for the kids on the Saturday we went so they could ride as many rides as they wanted, the band offers unlimited rides until 7pm.  Our kids had a blast.

Spend the day at the fair, it's a day your whole family will enjoy.  The LA County fair is open Wednesdays through Sundays.

Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $8 for kids on weekdays.  and $20 for adults and $12 for kids on weekends.  Children 5 and under are free.  Find out about special discounts on their website.
