Top 4 Things to do at the 2017 L.A. County Fair

September 5, 2017 No Comments
The Los Angeles County Fair has a long and rich history dating back to the 1920’s when the fair found its home in the city of Pomona. What started as an agricultural exhibit all those years ago, has transformed into the biggest, most quintessential county fair on the West Coast. Year after year, the L.A. County Fair plays host to all of the fair standards like carnival rides & games, crazy food experiments, and a top notch concert series. Read on for my favorite attractions of 2017. 

#1 The Taylor Swift Experience

By far, the BEST thing we did at the fair this year (and that’s not just because it was air conditioned!). This exhibit will cost you an extra five bucks, but if you even like T Swift a little, it’s well worth it. There’s memorabilia, a recording studio where you can sing along with Taylor, couches to watch a concert, and a gift shop.  I don’t want to give it all away, but this was done really well and made my little girl’s day. 
#2 Esmeralda’s Traveling Circus
Stroll through a shady outside corridor and watch trapeze artists and other circus folk do their thing. There are comedic shows and areas where you can ‘step right up’ and visit with a giant horse and a giant steer- they are insanely huge! The side shows are well-produced with great costumes. 
#3 The Food


I mean, need I say anything? Each year the food selection seems to get crazier and crazier.  Anything bacon wrapped always tops the list, but this year I was intrigued by the deep fried watermelon!
#4 The Farm


I don’t know why, but The Farm areas seemed more well-maintained than past years and had more character with the addition of little wooden towns dotting the covered animal pens.  Miniature horses and miniature pigs are new additions to the farm this year and you can still catch a pig race after you watch a sheep get sheared.
