Infographic: FairKids Field Trips Program

The FairKids Field Trips program has been an important part of the LA County Fair since its inception 15 years ago. This free program allows us to introduce students to the educational components at the Fair.

Before we open our gates to the public, thousands of feet have already covered the grounds for the day, exploring all there is to learn at the Fair! Keep reading for a look into our FairKids Field Trips program:

There’s more to the Fair than carnival rides and deep-fried food (although we love those too!) Even as seasoned vets of the Fair, we learn something new every year and it’s a blast to see students experience this for themselves.

Visit tlcfairplex.org/fair to learn more about our free FairKids Field Trips offerings, including curriculum, sign-up procedures and more.

FairKids Field Trips La County Fair

More than 140,000 students and teachers visit the Fair each year through the FairKids Field Trip program! 

While some might think we’re just a bunch of carnival rides and deep-fried food, there is a treasure trove of learning opportunities in every corner of the LA County Fair!

From the agriculture and California heritage activities on The Farm to the science and history lessons (disguised as fun, of course) at our many exhibitions, there is something for children of all ages, from preschool to high school.

We can’t wait to welcome all our guests to the Fair this year, and we especially can’t wait to welcome the students in our community.

Here’s to the 2016 LA County Fair!

Visiting Mojo

We stopped by Mojo (our beloved Capuchin monkey)’s year-round home this week to say hi to her and her trainer Karla. We were also able to visit with some of our animal friends from the Lagoon and the Big Red Barn. Check it out!

We can’t wait to welcome all our old friends back to the Fair in September. It’s coming up fast…

LACF Community Partnerships: American Red Cross

Community partnerships are a staple of the LA County Fair. Today we had the honor of handing over an $8,065 check to the American Red Cross San Gabriel Pomona Valley Chapter.

Each year the Fair hosts Week for Heroes, where a portion of all law enforcement and military personnel ticket admissions goes towards a local charity. This year we chose the American Red Cross and we are glad to have them as community partners. 

Thank you to all of our guests who contributed towards making this donation possible!

We were especially excited to receive 1st place in the New Featured Event Exhibit or Program category for our Popnology exhibit. (If you followed along with us on the blog you know how excited we were to have this exhibition at the Fair!)

LACF 2016 Preview: It’s baa-aack

2016 is just around the corner and plans for next year’s Fair are here! We wanted to share a little sneak preview of one of our attractions: Jurassic Planet. Yep, the fan favorite is back in town! If you’re a dinosaur fan like we are, you’ll love everything we are bringing to the Fairgrounds but for now, here is a quick look: 

Each exhibit starts as a sketch, then transforms into the life-size attraction one step at a time. It can take up to 3 months to build our larger exhibits.

What kind of dinosaur wonders are behind those gates? You’ll have to wait and see!
