This year we had the pleasure of partnering with LORE Productions to feature these beautiful sugar skulls in front of the Millard Sheets Art Center:
Come see them for yourself before the Fair ends on Sunday!by

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!

We had a great time celebrating the City of Los Angeles’ awarding of the 2028 Summer Games. We enjoyed a parade with LA 2028, LA84 Foundation, Olympians and Paralympians. Mayor Eric Garcetti, Supervisor Hilda Solis and Olympic champion John Naber were among those who came to celebrate with us at Celebrate ’28.

Congratulations Los Angeles, we are so excited the Games are back!by
As part of the Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition, we have gold medal and best of show winners here at the Fair. In the Wine, Beer and Spirits Marketplace, there is a corner full of award-winning olive oil from all around the world.
Not only can you see the diverse flavors, labels and types of olive oil from various countries, you can taste and buy them too. The olive oil tasting is free, so grab a piece of bread and dip it in a variety of options from blood orange to sweet basil. And when you find the one(s) you love, you can buy them to take home and enjoy year round.
Most of the olive oils available for sale are local from California. But one in particular comes all the way from Italy. One of the Italian olive oil producers shipped his olive oil, La Farfalla di Farfa, and flew all the way to the Fair for opening weekend, so that fair guests could enjoy his authentic Italian olive oil.
Come out to the Marketplace for free olive oil tastings and to buy some of the best olive oil in the state.
Earlier today we were honored with the presence of World War II veteran Fernando A. Torres and his wife Gail Torres. The two love the Fair and have attended every year since 1966, which is where they had their first date.
Here are some pictures that were captured from this very special day & parade:
Fernando and Gail have one son and one daughter, and three grandchildren who love coming to the Fair.
Fernando, Thank you for your service to this country and CONGRATULATIONS on your 51st Fair.by
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!)
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.
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).

From pie eating to hula hooping and bubble gum blowing, there is a chance for everyone to win a blue ribbon and have fun at the same time. So take a break from the funnel cake and come over to the Galaxy Stage for some old fashioned fun.
Our star Hula Hoopers were so good we had to add 2 more hoops before they dropped them.
Another favorite is the water balloon tossing contest. Grab a partner and get ready to be splashed. As you step farther and farther away it gets harder and harder not to pop your balloon. But if you do, no problem, it is a great way to cool off.
Frank and Samantha Mendez from Pomona played as a family team, and were the winners of our blue ribbons. Our Crazy Cosmic Contests are even better when you play with friends and family, so come visit the Galaxy Stage and view our schedule of contests here.
Hey fair fans!
What’s cuter than animals? Miniature animals! And the Little Red Barn is full of them.
From miniature pigs and donkeys, to baby doll sheep and pygmy goats, the Little Red Barn will definitely make you wish you lived on a farm.
If you don’t feel like this little pig after you went to the Fair, did you really go to the Fair?
This cow jumped over the moon and found his way to the LA County Fair.
What goes better with mini animals than nursery rhymes? This is one of our favorite. We even have mother goose hanging out with a miniature hen, which is sure to take you back to your childhood readings of The Little Red Hen storybooks.
***WE HAVE 3 WINNERS***
Congratulations to our winners Gregory Kenyota, Tiana Mitchell and Alexandra Razo for being selected as our winners. Gregory said the baby sheep are his favorite, Tiana enjoys watching the racing pigs and Alexandra Razo loves the baby chicks because they are so fluffy.
Thank you everyone for playing!
