The theme is a tribute to pop culture, “with a spotlight on Los Angeles influence,” as stated in the Feb. 5 L.A. County Fair press release. The event opened Friday and will be held at the Pomona Fairplex until Sept. 22.  

Admission for adults is $14 on weekdays and $20 on weekends, but there are several ways for students to save money. College Day at the fair is on Sept. 6 and students can buy tickets in advance online for $8 or day-of tickets at the door for $12. Students must present their valid college ID card upon entrance to use the discounted tickets. 

For those who cannot make it to College Day at the fair for the discounted ticket price, visit a local Superior Grocers store to purchase a single-day admission ticket for the same price of $12.

For students on a budget, be sure to look out for the $6.50 value menu options throughout the fairgrounds. 

Grab a deep fried strawberry Uncrustable from Chicken Charlie’s, a BBQ pork sundae from Texas Style BBQ or a Tajin Dole Whip from Nitro Treats. The L.A. County Fair website provides a full list of the unique food options.

The fair is also hosting its annual End of Summer Concert Series featuring performers such as George Lopez, Juanes, and Hammer’s House Party with MC Hammer, Biz Markie, En Vogue and Coolio to name a few.

Not only is there enticing food and music to look forward to, fairgoers can expect eye-catching pop art displays, retro arcade games and even a silent disco with a nostalgic Studio 54 theme. 

To partake in the excitement and purchase tickets for College Day, go to LACountyFair.com/Collegeday, select your ticket quantity and enter the password COLLEGEDay2019 to purchase the discounted student ticket for only $8 each.
