America’s Kids’ Adventures in Literature

“This world is but a canvas for our imagination”
– Henry David Thoreau

Some of the greatest adventures ever told take place on the pages of a book. With America’s Kids’ Adventures in Literature you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into an enchanted library where giant books, costumed characters and hands-on activities come together to create a literary adventure of your own.

At America’s Kids, you’ll see thousands of entries from talented students ages 3-18.  From coloring page contests to collections to dioramas, students have worked hard on these projects and earned ribbons to prove it!  

Play games, dress up, and open your imagination at one of our most creative exhibits at the Fair! Here are some pictures of our stroll this afternoon:

America’s Kids Gets Ready for the Fair

The America’s Kids exhibit provides a creative and educational space for children at the LA County Fair year after year. We got a sneak peak of the fun our creative team has in store for September, and we’re happy to share it with you!

Sets are getting a fresh coat of paint and walls will soon be filled with amazing Lego creations. All of the Lego sets submitted for the competition will also be on display throughout the fair, so get ready to be wowed. 

Hundreds of Legos are waiting to be put together… by you! There will be an open play area with building tables and we can’t wait to see what amazing creations are built there.

But the Lego area is just a small part of what America’s Kids has to offer. A knight’s castle, a doll house and more game areas give the kids a hands-on experience so they can have fun while they learn. So, parents, come enjoy the air conditioning, while your kids have the time of their lives.

America’s Kids & The Land of Frogs, Princesses and Knights: The Whimsical Side of the Fair

Dare to imagine in Expo Hall 5! Enter the Land of Frogs, Princesses & Knights, where the adventures are non-stop, from the brave and daring acts of the Knight School, to the fun and fancy antics of Wonderland.

Also in Expo Hall 5 is America’s Kids. This world is full of nostalgia, enchantment and wonder for guests of all ages. Children will see some of their favorite stories come to life while parents will get a tad nostalgic seeing some of their classics up close and personal.

Earlier this year we took you behind-the-scenes of this exhibit. Thousands of local children submitted creative projects to be displayed during the Fair.

When we last checked in, all the entries were spread on long tables, shelves and various storage spaces. Fast forward to September and our hard-working team has given out ribbons, awards and hung every submission out for our guests to see.
