Overview
More
Founded in the 1920s in Pomona, California, the LA County Fair is as much a celebration of California’s agricultural history as it is good ole’ summer fun. Carnival rides, parades and fair animals are commonplace here, as is any fried food and barbecue you can imagine. The fair has also incorporated some more contemporary elements over the years, like local art exhibitions and a summer concert series featuring iconic musical artists like Patti Labelle and Lynyrd Skynyrd. A whimsical time for the whole family, with non-stop California sunshine to boot.
