The LA County Fair Gives Back

This is why we are proud to announce that thanks to the efforts of our volunteers, staff members and guests, we were able to accomplish the following during the 2016 LA County Fair: 

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the numbers above and who believes in our mission to enrich lives by entertaining and educating the diverse community while creating unique and memorable experiences. See you all in 2017 for another great LA County Fair.

It’s L.A. County Day at the Fair!

We would like to thank the L.A. County employees who have done a wonderful job of serving the residents of Los Angeles! Many employees came out to the Fair today, including staff from the LAPD, LAFD, Department of Animal Care & Control, Public Health Services and many more. A special parade was given at noon to honor the employees.Check out some of the photos down below!

Giving Back at the Fair

Book Drive Donations

While we are all about fun at the Fair we also know it’s important to give back to the communities that mean so much to us.There are several ways we get involved with the community here including The Learning Centers at Fairplex programs, our FairKids Field Trip program and various community events.

There are ways you, as a Fairguest can give back too (and receive Fair tickets!):

-Thoughtful Thursdays: Every Thursday Fairguests have the chance to donate items to a variety of charities. This past Thursday we kicked off with a book drive resulting in over 6,000 donated books! Next week is the School Supply Drive. Click here for more details on Thoughtful Thursdays.

-Blood Drives: This year the Fair is working with the American Red Cross, Cedar Sinai, the City of Hope and Huntington Hospital to produce nine blood drives. We have had five so far, the most recent being this past weekend. The Huntington Hospital Bloodmobile was at the Fair and received 70 pints of donated blood!

-Canned Food Fridays: Friday was the first of 4 canned food Fridays planned for September. Guests brought in 24,372 cans in exchange for free admission noon-6 p.m. The food is donated to Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

We truly appreciate all the enthusiasm and generosity our guests bring to the Fair. As cheesy as it sounds, we really couldn’t pull off these events without you. Thank you!
