FairKids (grades K-6) - LA County Fair

Welcome to the World’s Largest Classroom! The LA County Fair invites you to discover something new around every corner.

The FairKids Field Trip Program allows students and teachers to enjoy an interactive educational experience, or what we call A Day Full of Learning Cleverly Disguised as Fun!

  • Opens at 9 a.m. (three hours before the public) for school children to participate in controlled fun and educational activities.
  • Curriculum aligns with California State Department of Education standards. Free and current educational curriculum will be posted so that you and your chaperones can easily educate students through our self-guided tours of the LA County Fair.
    • All LA County Fair exhibits aligned with California State Department of Education standards are open during FairKids Field Trips.
