The Carnival Eats crew visited us during the 2016 LA County Fair and — in line with our Dare to Fair theme — tasted the wildest, juciest, gooiest, strangest foods our Fair has to offer. You can watch it all on The Cooking Channel tonight at 8 p.m. ET.

We look forward to reliving the 2016 Fair! Stay tuned to see what wild foods we have planned for the 2017 Fair…

2016 LA County Fair Recap

Whew! The 2016 LA County Fair was a whirlwind of fun and adventure, which we documented over on our Fair blog, Hot Blog On A Stick.

Now that the smells of deep-fried food have faded, and the carnival rides, animals and guests have left, we’ve finally returned to our blogging efforts over here, and just in time for our fall festivities (more on that later.)

In case you missed it, here are some of our favorite moments from the Fair this year:

Fairplex Snapshot: The Farm Road

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!

Behind-the-Scenes: Fair Mode

It’s safe to say we’re in full Fair mode over here. Over the next few weeks our campus will slowly but surely transform into the Fairgrounds that 1.3 million guests trek through each year.

We have just begun set-up, but you can already tell it’s going to be an epic year:

The dinosaurs are taking their time migrating over here, but our entrance is almost built and ready to welcome guests in September.

If you walk a little further in, you can see where the cows, pigs, goats, sheep and other animals are going to be too.

Our team has already brought in familiar barn facades, hand-washing stations, and stages for our shows.

Sky Shivers will be driving down in a few weeks with all your Fair favorites, along with a few new friends!

LACF DIY display 1024x768 Behind the Scenes: Fair Mode One of our favorite spots, the DIY Design Studio, has made quite the transformation over the past couple months. Fair guests near and far have submitted their entries for our annual contests (jewelry, quilting, photography etc) and our team is busy putting everything up for display.

It seems like every day there’s something new that’s being built! Stay tuned here and on the official Fair blog to see what’s in store for the 2016 Fair.
