Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Refund Policy


Thank you to every winery, spirits producer, judge and partner who has supported Fairplex, the Los Angeles International Competitions and LA County Fair. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 wine and spirits competitions are canceled. We will be together again soon. In the meantime, we ask for your patience as we address your refund needs. Below are three options of refunds we currently have to offer for the 2020 competition. All wine & spirits already received for this year’s competition will be safely stored in our cellar and be automatically entered into the 2021 Competitions, if you choose, or you can choose to donate it.

Option A: Credit for 2021 competition

As a valued partner of Fariplex we are offering all entry participants the option to get a credit applied to the 2021 competition at 2020 rates. You have 30 days from May 22, 2020 to choose this option. If we don’t hear from you in 30 days don’t worry, your refund will automatically become a 100% credit for the 2021 competition.

Option B: Donation

During these uncertain times, Fairplex would like to ask for your support. Make the value of your 2020 entry fee a donation to our TLC COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. This will be a 100% tax-deductible donation. You have 30 days from May 22, 2020 to choose this option. If we don’t hear from you in 30 days don’t worry, your refund will automatically become a 100% credit for the 2021 competition.

Option C: Full refund

These are difficult times for everyone and we are here to support you every step of the way. We understand if you decide to do neither of the two options above. We are fully committed to addressing your needs as a valued partner. For a full refund you have 30 days from May 22, 2020 to choose this option. Refunds will be processed beginning July 20. If we don’t hear from you in 30 days don’t worry, your refund will automatically become a 100% credit for the 2021 competition.
