  1. What day is “L.A. County Day” for this years fair?

  2. Will opening day be $1.00 or has this changed?

  3. hello my name is Jahel and i wanted to know where the LA Human Resources is located?

    • Hi Jahel, Our human resources department is located at Fairplex (where LACF is held.) You can contact them by calling (909) 623-3111

    • Hi Sherry, Unfortunately the deadline for art submissions has passed for this year’s Fair. You can view details on how to submit art and other DIY submissions here, so you’ll be ready for next year 🙂 Thank you!

  4. If I bought tickets from groupon, can I use it for opening weekend??

  5. I simply cannot believe the stupidity that went into the decision NOT to have
    live horse racing at the fair,which has ALWAYS been one of the main reasons why many,many loyal patrons even go there.What in the world are you people thinking? Don’t you know anything about running a business?
    What next fun thing are you guys going to eliminate to drive loyal fans away?
    Oh yeah,you already did that by eliminating the dollar admission days this year.
    I would like to believe that horse racing will return again because you’ll realize
    how many fans and money you’re actually going to lose!
    I speak for MANY horse racing fans that are extremely pissed about that ridiculous decision.I sincerely hope you guys come to your senses and reverse that horrible move!!!!!!!!!

  6. Hi there, i’m interested in going to the NeonTrees concert at your fair, and i would like to know where i can purchase 2 tickets for the concert? Also will the concert be in an open area, or will it have standing admission and balcony seats? I’d like to be able to visit the band’s merchandise booth , soo i’d like to know which tickets to purchase in order to have that chance. Bc at DelMarFair, only the standing admission audience were allowed/had access to the merchandise booths. I hope for a kind response. Thanks!

  7. So sad I will not be taking my family to the fair this year due to the elimination of the labor day $1 admission promotion. Yes there are other promotions throughout the event but the $1 weekend was something to look forward too as the price of the subsidized admission would be offset by the other venues requiring a fee. Who ever made this business decision is sorely mistaken and attendance numbers will show a decline as I know a lot of families who will skip the fair and go elsewhere this labor day weekend.

  8. Where can I purchase a season pass?

  9. Will there be an application update or a new app for LACF 2014?

    • Hi Justice, We will not be updating the LACF app this year. However, we have taken extra steps to ensure our website is mobile friendly so you have everything at your fingertips while you’re with us 🙂

  10. Hi is there any tribute bands playing this year at the fair?? If so who and what time. Thanks : )

    • We are working on our entertainment calendar and will have those showtimes listed for you very soon. Thank you for your patience!

  11. Will the tickets for Labor Day be the weekday $12 tickets or the any day $19 tickets?

  12. wow no $1.00 addmission this year thats messed up well i guess me and my family are not coming this year neather you guys need to change that cause if you don’t people will stop coming so i say change it before you lose buisness thanks yours truely Mark Leo Foster

  13. I would love to take my kids and girlfriend (including myself) to see R5 perform at the consent series this year. Both my daughters are under the age of 3, would I have to buy a concert ticket for the four us or would just the adults?

    • Hi Alfredo, As long as your daughters are 2 and under they can attend for free. However, they will need to sit on your laps. Thanks!

  14. Unfortunately the $1 dollar admission day is the only day some people with large families can afford. I hope you bring it back.

  15. So for adults on opening weekend will be $19.00 and kids $12 ?

  16. Sad to see the $1 opening day admission eliminated. It did give families a way to see the fair who may not been able to otherwise. All the “word of mouth advertising” from the first day had to create the wave of visitors to follow.

  17. Do you allow people to bring their own drinks like water or soda?

  18. Really sad the one dollar day its gone..
    i guess we wont be attending this year..
    …. about 50 of us were going from friends family .. and lots of KIDS…

    Thanks..

  19. i guess we wont be attending this year..
    …. about 50 of us were going from friends family .. and lots of KIDS…
    … bye dollar day..
    Thanks..

  20. i read somewhere theres a dr who tardis Is this true? If so, where is it located? My son would love to see it

  21. Are there any discounts for veterans?

    • Absolutely. Our Weekend For Heroes is Sept. 13-14 and all military AND veterans can visit the Fair for $2 admission. All proceeds from this promotion go towards the Wounded Heroes of America foundation. Thank you for asking!

  22. Can I being in sandwiches and sodas and snacks?

  23. When do parking lots open? When do ticket booths open? Where do we take our school supplies for free admission tomorrow? Are all the gates on the map open? Is there parking at the green and red gates?

    • Parking lots open one hour prior to Fair opening and ticket booths open 30 minutes prior to Fair opening.
      School supplies can be taken to any entrance between 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
      Red Gate is valet parking only, Green Gate is for Gate 1 VIP members and drop-off but all gates are open during Fair hours.
      Thanks!

  24. Is there only one price for general parking?

  25. What is the rule for bringing in my own water????

  26. Do you accept debit/credit cards?

  27. Great job ruining the LA County Fair. Yes, eliminate the live horse racing and add Oktoberfest,Wine fest,craft beer fest, drink fest, night club,charge $19 for entry and then hit them again with separate charges for everything under the sun, eliminate discounted entry……..Yup,ya got to love Henwood’s vision for a great family experience. What an idiot.

  28. Of course I have to comment on the 1st day admission price. When the people were on line and found out the admission price the lines got shorter fast. The man in front of me didn’t have enough to get in after paying $15 for parking.
    The area with the new outdoor kitchen was great but no one knew it was there. It seemed tucked away and uninviting. In fact, one dad started walking toward it and then decided it was too dark over there and told his 4 children there isn’t anything for them in the dark and scooted away.
    Walking across the race track was new. Why? It will cost a fortune to repair the track when the month of tramping over it is comes to an end.
    A lot of opportunity to drink alcohol this time at every turn, why? People are going to drink beer or wine if they want it. You don’t have to serve it every 20 yards.
    I hear from venders throughout the year that they can’t afford to be part of the LA County fair. The price of the booths are too expensive they say. Is that why there isn’t very much shopping this year?
    I just didn’t have the great experience I usually do. I like to go 3 and 4 times, not this year.
    My suggestion; Go over what you’ve taken away, beginning with the removal of the trams 6 years ago. Perhaps Angelinos won’t mind the price of the admission if the feel they’re getting their moneys worth.

  29. What dance studio in Whittier, CA sponsors the senior dance competition? Thanks.

  30. Perhaps, management should consider charging $2.00 for opening day. Eliminating the traditional $1.00 entry fee for opening day, if your are truly honest with your self you would have to agree was not the most popular decision.
    Also, I would like to suggest that your Veterans be treated….You know the way they should be.

  31. What kind of ouside drinks and snacks can we bring to the fair?

    • You can bring non-alcoholic beverages into the Fair as long as they are NOT in glass containers. Snacks may be stored in coolers no larger than 12″ x 18″ in size and must not be stored in glass containers. Please visit our Code of Conduct page for more information: http://lacf.com/visit/get-started

  32. What does the Season pass include & exclude ?

  33. My parents, who have since passed on often talked about the time they took my two brothers and myself to the fair. I was a baby and my brothers were probably 2&3, maybe 3&4. This had to be 1949 or so. At that time they had a child care center where you could drop off toddlers and they would watch them while the adults visited the fair. Apparently my parents took advantage of the child care and dropped off my two brothers. As the story goes my brothers were out in the play yard when my oldest brother, Harry, found a hole in the fence. He crawled out followed by my brother Roger. Unfortunatly Roger was followed by several other children who were soon wandering around the fair. Security was not happy and my parents were so embarrassed that it was a good twenty years before they could show their faces at the fair again.

  34. I plan on taking Uber to the fair this year. Where is the best spot to get dropped off?

  35. Can you bring snacks and sodas in for kids last year my sister wasnt aloud to bring in her energy drink

  40. Are coolers allowed inside? If they are how big can they be?

  41. What is the height requirement for the toddler rides?

  42. Is Outside food permitted into the LACF? Like homemade Sandwiches or FastFood?

  43. Every year we like to try the newest & oddest foods. Is there one place I can find a list & descriptions of these foods? I know sometimes fairs have competitions that the vendors enter, does the LA county fair have that & where can I see who won. I have been looking everywhere & I can’t find anything that is a list just an occasional picture. Thanks for the help!

  44. I have tickets to the Beach Boys concert there Thursday the 24th. Can I bring my 6 month old granddaughter in with us?

  45. So I was reading about the free concert tickets and here it tells me that the booth starts giving away the free tickets and the LA county fair website said at 1pm? What is the actual time and what do suggest to be time to get tickets?

    • Hi Yesenia, We give away a limited amount of free concert tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis, beginning at 1 p.m. on the day of the concert. Please arrive either earlier or right on-time, as we cannot guarantee free tickets for everyone. Thanks!

  46. I have two questions/concerns. First: The only way I can go to the fair is by taking the bus from Upland/Ontario with my skateboard. When I got there the first day, I bought my season pass and the let me in at the Blue gate with my skateboard, all they said to do was walk it and not ride it. And there were no problems that day. The next day I came to the Blue gate again and then they told me I couldn’t bring my skateboard in nor could I put it at the lockers? What happened to them allowing me in on the first day with it? And there are a few skateboard selling vendors in the fair.

  47. My second concern was with my season pass. I lost it in the park and could not find it in the lost in found when I was there. Is there anyway I can get a replacement? I have proof of purchasing it through my bank account statement and I also have the coupon book that I haven’t used yet? Thank you.

  48. Does the person that bought the tickets have to be there in order for the other people to go in? The tickets are under my husbands name and he has to work now.

  123. I paid for a party Box last year for the Chicago concert. I just want to say for who ever reads this, it was the most HORRIBLE experience. I not only paid and reserved for a box right in the middle. When I went to follow up because i never received my tickets. They never processed my order, by then all the boxes were taken except for one at the end. There was no compensation, when I did finally receive my tickets my parking passes (I paid for) were not included. I had to end up going down to the fair just to pick up parking passes. The day of the concert, a employee came in and rudely said I was over the amount of people I paid for. I had everyone freeze to take count. And NO I was not over. I would NEVER go back or recommend a party box to anyone.

    • Hi Rosie,
      Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you had a negative experience at our End of Summer Concert Series event. We will share your comments regarding your party box booking, parking passes and the treatment you received from one of our employees with our team, as we are always looking to improve our guests’ experience at the Fair.
