The LACF is one of the largest and most diverse county fairs in the world. In fact, at
487 acres, the LACF has a larger footprint than both the Iowa State Fair (435 acres) and Texas State Fair (445 acres).
The LACF is home to one of the largest urban farms in America. The onsite, year-round working Farm at Fairplex boasts more than 150 California specialty crops, allowing for the ultimate farm-to-Fair foodie experience. Dedicated to its community, The Farm also serves as an educational resource, offering lessons in sustainability, healthy eating and crop growing.
LACF stages have featured a “Who’s Who” of musical performers – from Ray Charles, Dottie West and Rick Nelson in 1974 to the Beach Boys in 1983, Jessica Simpson in 2008, Blake Shelton in 2009 and 2015’s Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Kool & The Gang and The Beach Boys.
In 2001, country music superstar Toby Keith became the first artist to sell-out the grandstand during the LACF Summer Concert Series.
