For the third straight year, Red Bull Straight Rhythm took over Fairplex this past weekend for the most unique race in the world of professional motocross. Fans from all across the SoCal visited our campus with family and friends to cheer their favorites riders. This Supercross game changer took place on a 1/2-mile “unwound” racetrack — no turns, just a half-mile-long straight rhythm section. This year featured a revised format where practice, qualifying and racing all took place on the same day, with the final taking place at night under the lights to crown the 2016 Red Bull Straight Rhythm champion.

Congratulations to Marvin Musquin for winning the 2016 Red Bull Straight Rhythm’s Open Class and to Shane McElrath for winning the Lite Class!

Oktoberfest Must-Knows

If you’re planning to hit Oktoberfest, here’s what you SHOULD know:

Oktoberfest2014 07 300x199 Oktoberfest Must Knows1. Lots of beer Oktoberfest is all about the beer. Whether you’re into IPA’s or into something lighter – something like Bud Light – we have a beer for everyone! Our beer selection is quite lengthy, so do yourself a favor and visit our website for a full list of available beers. Trust us, you’ll want to do this so you have more time to drink!

2. Lots of food  Drinking makes people hungry. We know that and you know that. shutterstock 445154743 300x200 Oktoberfest Must KnowsWe also know freshly baked pretzels go well with all types of beer. If you’re not feeling like having some bratwurst or pretzels, we have King Taco, grilled sandwiches and Pink’s Hot Dogs.  We’re celebrating from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m. every Friday and Saturday through Oct. 29 and we hope to see you here with your squad. #SquadGoals

3. Lots of music & dancing  If you want to get the most out of Oktoberfest at Fairplex, we recommend leaving your inhibitions at the door and doing some traditional (and not-so-traditional) dancing with our oom-pah-pah band. We’ll take you through the Chicken Dance, group dances and partner dances, and we will definitely have you up and on your feet by the end of the night! P.S. – Our cover bands are always a good time too!

Photo Mar 15 8 43 26 AM 1024x768 Happy National Farmers Day!

Thanks to their dedication, our crops continue to prosper, our chickens, rabbits, quails, turtles and fish continue to thrive, and our educational programs flourish. Their knowledge, care and attention to detail have made our Farm one of the most beautiful AND useful aspects of Fairplex.

We can’t thank them enough for all that they do!

Fairplex Snapshot: Baby Quails at The Farm

Fairplex Farm quails2 768x1024 Fairplex Snapshot: Baby Quails at The Farm Have you met our newest Farm at Fairplex residents? In addition to our rabbits, chicken, koi fish and turtles, we are now proud owners of eight baby quail!

These little guys have an entire section of the barn to themselves, where they eat, run, hop and occasionally fly all day long.

Our volunteers have handled them nearly every day so they’re not afraid of humans. In fact, if you walk into their barn, they’ll walk right up to you (in hopes of food, of course!)

We just love our new friends — and they seem to like us too icon smile Fairplex Snapshot: Baby Quails at The Farm

Prepare for college at the So Cal College Fair

Applications, SATs vs ACTs, financial aid, choosing a major — the college selection process can seem overwhelming, whether you’re a student or a parent. The more you plan ahead, the more organized and prepared you will be, and the So Cal College Fair is a great way to get started.

Fairplex Events socalcollegefair Prepare for college at the So Cal College Fair

The Learning Centers at Fairplex has invited many universities, tech, trade and community colleges to the expo, where students and parents will have the opportunity to explore different majors and career paths, speak with school representatives and learn about financial aid opportunities specific to each school.

We will also be hosting informational seminars on test preparation, application tips, scholarships, financial aid and other useful subjects.

Even if you aren’t planning on attending college for a couple years, it’s never too early to start seeing what’s out there and forming a plan for what life might look like after high school. P.S. The event is completely free and open to everyone.

Fairplex Weekend Recap: Oktoberfest Opens

Our campus seems strangely quiet after the festivities of the past weekend. Keep reading to see what happened at Fairplex:

Oktoberfest Opens
Our biggest event, Oktoberfest at Fairplex, opened to the masses on Friday night. The Festhalle boomed with oom-pah-pah music as guests crowded around our long tables with their steins of beer and German food.

The Plaza is open for the less traditional fun — rock music, King Taco and more beer (naturally.) We feature a different tribute band every weekend of Oktoberfest. Led Zepagain helped us kick off the fun.

Fairplex Events Oktoberfest concert 1024x681 Fairplex Weekend Recap: Oktoberfest Opens

And last but not least, this year we opened up the Dance Halle, home to DJ Schlagen who put his modern musical spin on Oktoberfest. Needless to say, it was a packed house.

It was a weekend full of dancing, games, food and plenty of toasts to go around. It starts again this Friday! Visit for more info, including tickets, hours and pricing.

California RV Show
Across the street from Oktoberfest, the 64th Annual Giant RV Show opened to road travel enthusiasts. Guests shopped RV homes, new products, spoke with vendors, and networked with fellow travelers. Check out one YouTuber’s vlog capturing the opening day activities:
