    2017 High School Marching Band Competition Results

    September 22nd, 2017

    Each year a number of high school marching bands participate in our daily parades. They aren’t just performing, they’re actually competing for a cash prize which is awarded on the last Friday of the Fair.

    This year’s winners are:

    1st Place: Diamond Bar High School
    2nd Place: Glendora High School
    3rd Place: Upland High School

    Each band wins between $2,500 – $10,000 in cash, which goes back towards their department. Congratulations to our winning bands and thank you to all the schools who participated this year!

    The marching band competition is one of our favorite Fair traditions and we look forward to it every year.

    Into The Looking Glass

    September 21st, 2017

    Located in-between Jurassic Planet and the Flower & Garden Pavilion, The Atrium is one of our favorite little spots inside the busy Fairgrounds!

    Enter the world of Wonderland. Fantasy-like creatures and colorful displays can be found within the lush flora and fauna of the Atrium. Alice in Wonderland fans might recognize favorites like the flamings and hedgehogs from that fateful croquet game.

    The Dodo Den features brightly-colored birds like kestrels, parrots, owls and toucanettes.

    And of course, it wouldn’t be Wonderland without a Mad Tea Party, complete with sweet treats, quirky teacups and a couple March hares.

    Guests who are looking to stay awhile might be interested The Wonderland Stage gardening workshops, where you can learn how to make your own terrarium, pot your very own DIY Flower Teacup centerpieces, and create your own Fairy Gardens.

    If you’re more of an animal person, The Looking Glass Stage is the place to be, where our experienced specialists will tell you all about our majestic Wonderland creatures, and introduce you to some of them, face-to-face!

    We hope you’ll take some time to explore the Flower & Garden Pavilion / Atrium during your visit to the Fair. It’s the perfect escape from the carnival crowds :)

    And now it’s time for a giveaway!

    Blue Ribbons Galore at the DIY Design Studio

    September 14th, 2017

    Looking for old-school Fair fun? Look no further than the DIY Design Studio, home to dozens of competitions. From photography to knitting to baking, this is the place where our most creative guests can show off their talents (and compete for a coveted blue ribbon!)

    la county fair home arts Many competition entries are submitted beforehand; participants don’t know who won until they walk through our doors and see their work on display (a long-time Fair tradition!)

    No matter how many times we’ve walked through the DIY Design Studio, we’re always impressed with the level of care participants put into their projects.

    Minor details — the smallest rose on a cake, the finishing touch on a tablescaping piece, the perfect color on a crotchet blanket — are distinct reminders that the home arts are truly alive and well in our community.

    la county fair home arts Guests check out the tablescaping entries on display

    Fairplex CEO & President Miguel Santana takes a look at our culinary competition winners so far

    In addition to the entries that have already been judged, new blue ribbons are being awarded every single day in our live culinary competitions!

    Iron Chef and Chopped-like competitions, where guests have to create dishes on the spot with a secret (Fair-themed) ingredient, and traditional contests like the grilled cheese and salsa competitions are held on a weekly basis.

    The first, second and third place winners have their picture taken and placed on our board in the competitions arena (pictured in the photo above).

    It’s always a good day to Dare to Fair!

    September 10th, 2017

    Right before the Fair started, we shared our Top 10 Ways to Dare to Fair (old-school style.) Since then, we’ve had a blast living out classic Fair fun like riding the Tilt-A-Whirl and eating (a little too much) funnel cake. Share your best #DaretoFair memories with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #LACountyFairDare! 

    Here’s a little inspiration to get you started:

    The LA County Fair visits Union Station!

    September 7th, 2017

    One of our favorite Fair traditions: bringing some of the Farm into downtown Los Angeles!

    Early morning riders at Union Station were surprised by some of our favorite animal friends: lambs, kids (baby goats), chickens and miniature pigs when they entered the train station today.

    We set up shop inside, where passengers were getting ready for the daily morning commute.

    Sky Shivers, the Fair’s resident cowboy and some of his friends also came along to help take care of the animals, and to chat with curious visitors.

    After hanging out for a couple hours with passengers, we all hopped on the Metrolink train and headed back to the Fairgrounds. (P.S. You can take Metrolink to the Fair on the weekends! Click here for more info.)

    Thanks to everyone who decided to Dare To Fair with us in downtown this afternoon! It’s always fun to meet new friends :) Here are some more pics from this morning:
