Thank you for your interest in participating at the 2016 LA County Fair, which will take place September 2 – September 25, 2016 (closed Mondays, except Labor Day, and Tuesdays). 

We are proud to offer parades that are exciting, unique, and diverse and include various elements that honor our different communities, heroes, organizations, and Fair attractions.

All parade participants must be identifiable – wearing a uniform, matching shirts, or other costumes that complement the group or parade’s theme.
