LA County Fair

After nearly 100 years of holding its annual Southern California tradition of ooey-gooey delectables on-a-stick, farm animals and carnival thrills in September, the LA County Fair announced today it is permanently moving its dates to May beginning in 2022, when the Fair celebrates its Centennial. Guests can expect to experience the Fair of the past, present and future as the 2022 LA County Fair celebrates the 100th anniversary of the very first Fair held in 1922 with the theme “Back to Our Roots.” From remembering the Fair’s early days of tent expositions to the introduction of midcentury inventions like the Frisbee to the home of the future, the 2022 Fair will embody nostalgia, warmth and good old-fashion fun.
