The L.A. County Fair is permanently moving its dates!
After nearly 100 years, the L.A. County Fair is moving its dates from September to May starting in 2022, which marks the fair's centennial celebration!
Next year, the fair will run from May 5 to May 30. Organizers are excited that the tradition will be available to host on Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, and Memorial Day.
The iconic fair was cancelled both this year and in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision to change dates also allows for cooler weather. During the last few Septemebers, the fair experienced triple-digit heat which organizers say negatively impacted fairgoers, vendors and partners.
In addition, although a fair was canceled for 2021, the fair is planning to host a Fair Food event in late September! So exciting!
Join the conversation below and let us know how you feel about the LA County Fair moving to the month of May.
