A new month means new events at Fairplex! We’re incredibly busy with classes at The Learning Centers at Fairplex, shopping expos, drag racing, a fun run and more. Here are just a few of the things going down this month!
Western Horse Expo (Feb 5-7): Whether you ride horses or are just a huge fan, you won’t want to miss the Western Horse Expo Pomona this weekend! The expo is hosting training and education, premier equine vendors, live entertainment and plenty of opportunities to connect with fellow equestrians. For more info visit horseexpoevents.com.
50th Annual NHRA Winternationals (Feb 11-14): Forget football, drag racing season is HERE and it’s kicking off at Fairplex! The NHRA Winternationals is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with car displays, burnout demonstrations and exhibition runs on our legendary dragstrip.
Meet Funny Car drivers, participate in a Q&A with race pros and enjoy the adrenaline rush as cars race down the dragstrip on their way to the Championship. For more information visit nhra.com.
Palates & Palettes (Feb 13): Valentine’s Day weekend is almost here and we have the perfect way to start your three-day weekend. Take your significant other to a painting and wine session at the Millard Sheets Art Center. We will be learning to paint Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh as well as exploring the food and wine of his homeland, The Netherlands. More info available at tlcfairplex.org/art/.
Southern California Pet Expo (Feb 20-21): Bring your furry and feathered friends to Fairplex for a weekend of woofing, chirping and meowing. The SoCal Pet Expo offers spa treatments from local groomers, sample treats and pet attire. Pet owners will have the opportunity to chat with top trainers and learn pet-care tips from animal welfare organizations. For those looking for a more interactive experience, there will be an agility demonstration and pet talent and costume shows. For more information socalpetexpo.com.
Quinceanera Expo (Feb 27-28): Rounding out this month’s diverse events is the Quinceanera Expo. Trade professionals will be available to show you the latest trends in gowns, dresses, makeup and hairstyles. Tuxuedo, party decor, photography, choreography, DJs, limousines, cake and invitation vendors will also be on hand to show you what they have to offer.
Think of this event as a way of avoiding long days driving, parking and hopping from store to store as you get a head start on planning your big day. For more info visit quinceanerasmagazine.com.
Other Events (all month): There are plenty of other happenings this month too, from the Hot Tub SwimSpa Show (Feb. 5-7) to the Gold & Treasure Show (Feb. 20-21) to Insane Inflatable 5K (Feb 27)! We’ll be giving you a heads up on all of these on our L.A. Weekender posts but it never hurts to lock down plans for the weekend.
