LA County Fair


The LA County Fair returns Friday, August 30 bringing delicious food, exciting rides and great entertainment. Metrolink has a special stop at the fair on Saturdays and Sundays!

General Overview


Celebrate decades of cultural phenomena as the 2019 LA County Fair Goes Pop! From art to clothes to technology and toys, the Fair takes a deep dive into Pop Culture, with a spotlight on Los Angeles’ influence. Immerse yourself in delights, décor and doohickeys from the 1950s on – frozen dinners, Elvis the Pelvis, the squawk box, space flight, disco, Andy Warhol, electric cars and phones made for yapping that also set the toes a tappin’. The Fair is where nostalgia and relevancy collide!

When the Fair Goes Pop, guests can stroll among giant iconic LA art installations or dance at a modern-day Studio 54 at the Silent Disco, both on the hillside; trek through memory lane with toys from years past at Toytopia, including a giant Etch-A-Sketch and life-sized Monopoly game; experience an explosion of pigmentation as the Flower & Garden Pavilion bursts in Pops of Color; and play among the collision of technology and pop culture in Popnology 2.0, where science fiction becomes science fact.

New for 2019, each weekend will include a music and arts festival featuring the diversity of LA County.

The Fair will also feature its carnival, operated by Ray Cammack Shows; the End of Summer Concert Series; farm animals; food; shopping and more. The Pop Life never ends at the Fair. All attractions, with the exception of the Carnival and reserved seats at concerts, are included with the price of admission.

The value continues as weekday admission remains the same as 2018: $14 for adults (ages 13+), $8 for children (ages 6-12) and $10 for seniors (ages 60+); weekend admission is $20 for adults, $12 for children and $15 for seniors. Children ages 5 and younger are always free. Special discounts are also available.
