2018 Applications are now available!
Thank you for your interest in participating in our parades at the 2018 LA County Fair, which will take place August 31 – September 23, 2018 (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. 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. We accept applications up until two weeks before your parade of choice. Click here for our community days calendar.
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 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!
