Los Angeles County Fair television ads even poked fun at adults accustomed to simple foods such as hot dogs. The largest county fair in the world gets well over one million visitors each year. In addition to over 2000 vendors selling funnel cakes, BBQ, grilled chicken and hotdog on a stick, you'll find thoroughbred racing and top entertainment, plus local days focused on nearby communities and several days with Hispanic entertainment such as contemporary rock and pop musicians known throughout Mexico, or the annual Fiesta Day.


Up coast in the Monterey Bay area, the fair takes on an interesting twist. Located near the Salad Bowl of America (Salinas), the Monterey County Fair guarantees you'll find some unique foods and wines to sample during your visit. Monterey County blends fine dining, arts, entertainment and cuisine with farm living, as much of the county is a rich agricultural commodity.


Orange County Fair is beloved by those who find the beach lifestyle's not all that bad. Sure, you don't get many opportunities to raise cattle in the OC, but that doesn't mean that it can't be imported from other regions. With greater focus on arts, culture and entertainment, the OC Fair offers the food and trappings you'll find elsewhere, plus the carnival rides, latest home appliances, and just plain fun.


With so many youth growing up in California's urban areas, there's a real need for fairs. Each fair is different and fun so if you have the opportunity, don't visit just one--check out several.


Fairs make great weekend getaway vacations, especially in places such as Sonoma and Napa where wine products are grown.
