Pomona Assembly Center Plaque

Today we had the honor of unveiling the Pomona Assembly Center plaque at Fairplex. This landmark recognizes the Japanese Americans detained at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in 1942 during World War II.

We were honored to have more than 100 guests and several presenters at the event, including several of the Japanese Americans detained here, representatives from the U.S. Army, the Consul General of Japan, and family members of many who were part of this history. 

Special thanks to all who made this ceremony happen, including the Pomona Assembly Center committee, LACFA members and Fairplex employees.

The Assembly Center plaque is located at Gate 1 next to the Fairplex Administration building.

Farming happens 24/7 at The Farm, but during the LA County Fair, we add an extra heap of energy to the normal urban farm life. The Farm Road, for instance, becomes a colorful, dynamic tapestry of Fair treats and entertainment.

Guests can say hello to the Budweiser Clydesdales, take a peek into popular circus acts, indulge their sweet and savory cravings, and take in the view of the Grandstand.

As we get into Fair season (Sept. 2 – 25) head over to the Hot Blog On A Stick to learn about that Farm Fair life: a dude ranch, line dancing, delicious food, shows, animals, tours and more. We can’t wait!
