The 2012 L.A. County Fair begins on Friday, August 31, 2012 and goes on thru Sunday, September 30, 2012. The fair is 90 years old with its first year being in 1922 in which it began on October 17 and went on to October 22 (only 5 days!) and it took place in a field where beets had been grown. This is testament to how things have changed over the years. In fact, the first year festivities included: chariot races, airplane wing-walking exhibition and harness racing. Fast forward to 2012 and the L.A. County Fair the 4th largest fair in the United States and in excess of 1 million patrons visit the fair annually. In 2011 nearly 1.5 million people went to the Fair. The fair officials felt the strong attendance last year was from 70's and 80's era musical performers such as Boz Scaggs, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Earth Wind and Fiare and Michael McDonald and the choice of many different types of food.

The L.A. County Fair is put on by the Los Angeles County Fair Association and it takes place at the Fairplex which is 543 acres of land. There is also a hotel and exposition complex that are part of the Fairplex. This fair is meant to be a link between the public and California's agricultura industry. Fairgoers can learn many interesting things about California's history and at the same time enjoy fun things to do, fattening fair food and phenomenal entertainment. Recently the fair has moved away from livestock competitions and now petting zoos are the big thing at the fair. The L.A. County Fair also has a miniature garden railroad and a fully operational farm.
