Celebrate the 92nd Anniversary of the Los Angeles County Fair! We’ll be bringing you fun trivia, cool photos and even cooler promotions!
County fairs are much more popular than county unfairs, where vendors hold cotton candy just out of reach and the strongman contest is rigged with balloon dumbbells. Level the playing field with this Groupon.

2014 Los Angeles County Fair
The 2014 Los Angeles County Fair celebrates the best of Southern California—and many other parts of the world. Luminasia lights up the fair with Asian-inspired, whimsical lanterns that are handcrafted from China. Blossoms sway in the Flower & Garden Pavilion and Atrium, devoted to Chinese-style gardens and exhibits of the flora and fauna of China’s tropical rainforests. The Beneath the Sea exhibit brings fairgoers face to fin with sharks, stingrays, and sea lions. Capuchin monkey Mojo rules over the Wild and Crazy Lagoon and its other creatures. Drawn from closer to home, hundreds of Californian crops surround a barn where visitors can milk a goat or maybe even witness a calf hatching from its egg.
Humans and superhumans get their day in the sun, too. The Hall of Heroes has real-life rescuers stand side by side with Batman, Spiderman, and Superman—perhaps standing ready in case any swashbucklers escape the Pirates of the Sky stage show and try to conscript members of Esmeralda’s Traveling Circus.
As the sun sets, the doors of Grinding Gears creak open, revealing a steampunk-themed nightclub where bands and DJs mix pop and industrial sounds as acrobats flip through the air. And late into the night, the lights of a slew of traditional carnival rides whirl through the air like exceedingly well-behaved fireworks.
