We have said over and over how important our ambassador volunteers are to us, and that’s because it’s true! Our ambassadors, not just for Fair but all Fairplex year-round community events, are essential to our success.
Ambassadors make our guests feel welcome and genuinely love spending time with us. In honor of countless hours of dedication to Fairplex and the LA County Fair, we host a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner, as our small way of thanking them for all that they do.
This year the theme was Mardi Gras, in line with our Flower & Garden Pavilion attraction at this year’s Fair.
We had tables bedecked with colorful beads and feathers, cake towers and giant masks lining the walls, and our community team on deck to welcome ambassadors to the party.
We had a blast and look forward to future volunteer events in 2016!

Thank you to everyone who dedicated time and energy to our community programs this year. We appreciate you!
We are proud to announce that the FairKids Field Trip Program that brings 150,000+ students to explore agriculture, animal husbandry and STEM topics during the annual LA County Fair is now a year-round program!
Yesterday, fifteen students from the Walnut Valley Unified School District were the first group of students to take advantage of this new program. Once at the Fairgrounds, students crunched leaves and tested the pH levels of various soils as they learned how different types of plants and produce grow.
By being part of this program, students will learn about the foods they eat, their nutritional value, where they come from, how they are grown/raised, the role Mother Nature plays on our food supply, sustainable agriculture, effective use of energy and water supplies and much more. This program is great for teachers interested in offering their students a hands-on approach.
We hope teachers in our surrounding communities take full advantage of the Fair’s newly expanded farm operations.
