Local Talent

Thank you for your interest in performing at the 2014 L.A. County Fair, which will take place August 29 – September 28, 2014 (closed Mondays, except Labor Day, Tuesdays, and Wednesday the 3rd).

 Please note that we are unable to accommodate bands on either stage unless they are completely acoustic (i.e.: school bands, soloists, etc). Applications from bands that are not acoustic will not be reviewed.

Groups are booked on a first-come, first-served basis, based on availability and type of performance.  The sole decision for selection rests with the L.A. County Fair Entertainment Department; any application may be rejected at any time, for any reason deemed necessary

We suggest you contact us after sending your application to confirm that we received it as we are not responsible for lost or misdirected forms. After your application has been processed and approved, confirmations, detailed information, maps, and ticket information will be sent to you during the summer.

We look forward to reviewing your application!

Parades

Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2014 L.A. County Fair Parades, which will take place August 29 – September 28, 2014 (closed Mondays, except Labor Day, Tuesdays, and Wednesday the 3rd).

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. Weekday parades will begin at 5pm (check in at 3:30pm) and Saturday, Sunday and the Labor Day parades will begin at 12pm (check in at 10:30am).

As always, our parades are designed to create a visual experience for our guests: costumes, a float, an elaborately decorated vehicle, flags, and creativity are highly encouraged for all participants! Please note that if you are not bringing a parade vehicle, you must be prepared to walk the entire parade route (approximately one mile).

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

Please fill out your parade application as soon as possible. After your application has been processed and approved, confirmations will be sent to you during the summer. Participating groups are limited to a maximum of 25 people and a maximum of one parade vehicle in order to accommodate as many groups as possible. Any exceptions (such as marching bands) must be approved in advance by the Entertainment Department.

We look forward to reviewing your application!
