LA County Fair Accepting Entries for More Than 20 Culinary Contests
Deadline for entry forms is Friday, July 28

Pomona, CA (June 29, 2017)— Bring your spatulas, whisks and favorite family recipes to the
LA County Fair this year to compete for blue ribbons and cash prizes in one of our culinary contests.

The deadline to sign up to showcase your out-of-this-world recipe or compete in one of our live competitions is coming up on Friday, July 28. So break out your family’s chili cookbook or famous pie recipe for these classic contests.

From tamales and cupcakes to cheesecake and home wine, there are more than 20 categories for you to show off your culinary expertise.

If you prefer performing live over preparing your recipes from home, we have the perfect competitions for you. Have you always wanted to be on Food Network and compete against other food fanatics? In our LA County Fair Chef Championships, each competitor has an hour to create a dish using only the ingredients they receive in their mystery box. Or bring your sous chef, ages 6 – 17 years old, for one of our Live Family Challenges.

Each entry is $5, excluding the $10 Live BBQ Contest entry. Winners will receive blue ribbons and prizes between $25 and $75 or $50 and $300 for the Live BBQ Contest.
