What is Premiere Party?

Before the gates open to over a million people, before the Ferris wheel whirls against the San Gabriel Mountain skyline with gondolas full of guests, get your own sneak peek into the 96th anniversary LA County Fair at the 2018 Premiere Party. As the biggest fundraiser of the year, guests can enjoy the flora and fauna of the American Southwest in the Fair's Flower & Garden Pavilion, a Route 66-themed extravaganza celebrating the flowers and plants that set the desert floor ablaze with color.
