Behind-the-Scenes: Load-In Day at America’s Kids!

Have you ever been to our America’s Kids exhibit? Each year thousands of students submit works of art, creative writing, DIY projects and more to the LA County Fair, all based around a specific theme.

Our Creative team organizes all the projects and displays them inside America’s Kids for our 1.3 million guests to see for the duration of the Fair!

Today is the official load-in day for America’s Kids and we’re expecting about 8,000 submissions to be dropped off today. Here’s a quick look at what the exhibit currently looks like:

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:

LA County Fair Field Trips

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.

Take a field trip to the World’s Largest Classroom!

It’s that time of year again! We’re taking signups for our FairKids Field Trip program. This free program is perfect for teachers looking for affordable educational outings for their students. Learn more here.

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!
