Hey All!

There is a yearly tradition that my family has embraced since moving to Los Angeles and that is going to the L.A. County Fair. It’s such an amazing day filled with an astounding assortment of exciting exhibits that bring together California’s greatest exhibits to one place. The L.A. County Fair runs from August 30 through September 29.


A true Calitopia, this year’s Fair brings together underwater and animal adventures that rivals those in San Diego, animation workshops and Enterprise exhibitions straight from Hollywood, wine tasting experiences from Napa Valley, rides and entertainment greater than any other carnival and food experiences unlike any other. Let’s not forget about the food! The food is so unique and amazing. It’s not for those who are calorie counting or if you are take the day off and splurge at the L.A. County Fair!


This sourdough looks amazing doesn’t it?


You not only get great food but you can cool down at Beneath The Sea with an Underwater Adventure. There, you will watch as playful sea lions dance, sing, balance and retrieve at the thirty-minute Sea Lion Splash show, or if they are feeling more adventurous, stare down a shark at the Live Shark Encounter. For even more fun Under the Sea, Mermaid Melissa will be in her underwater habitat as she swims around and proves that mermaids do exist. You can also touch stingrays, walk through a coral reef and explore the history of the mysterious underwater sea monsters for a complete underwater experience.

Another amazing thing to do is learn the secret behind the scenes of animated films at Pencils to Pixels – The Art of Animation. A collaboration between Walt Disney Animation Studios, DreamWorks, Sony Pictures Animation and the Chuck Jones Estate, experience the unique aspects of animations including features and shorts, from 2-D pegboard to 3-D stop action claymation, model work and CGI.

On-site instructors will guide fairgoers step-by-step through creating hand-drawn characters and additional interactive stations throughout allowing them to layout animation and assign sound effects to an original cartoon.

It’s an event where you can get unique food and see amazing stations through out the fair.


I’m looking forward to the all-new Star Trek exhibition. From the TV show to the latest Into Darkness release, view authentic props, costumes and set pieces in the world’s largest Star Trek exhibit ever. I’m also looking forward to trying some of this amazing food.


Other fan favorites include the Carnival with more than 70 exciting rides; FairView Farms and Zuckerman’s Nursery for barnyard fun; Esmeralda’s Traveling Circus with trapeze aerial acts that rival Las Vegas; the Atrium highlighting the flora and fauna of the Amazon complete with rain and thunderstorms, as well as wine-tasting at the Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Marketplace.
