a drag race, car show, the LA County Fair, or some other seasonal event/fair. The venue is technically sound. The realistic outcome is that this place is a mega pain in the butt as you will always, yes I mean always, have to walk at least a mile or two to get to whatever you are going there for. The bathrooms are at stadium substandard and never seem all that clean. The food vendors (fairplex run places only) are crappy at best, and the security/information staff always suck and cant ever really direct you to where it is that you need to go or cause you random problems for no reason. *SMH* Overall no one goes for the fairplex experience but perseveres and endures said experience in order to enjoy whatever event, show, festival, or whatever it is that they are there for. Translation, prepare for the venue to be less than ideal, but hey at least you got to go to an event that you wanted to go to… YAY /sarcasm…

The LA County Fair is awesome! The fairplex is large enough to not have to be running into or bumping people the whole time. Makes the venue and events there very enjoyable.

The family loves the Fairplex especially when the NHRA is in town!!! Nothing like dragsters flying down the track and the sound of those engines!!! Parking is not bad pretty much what's expected for those events but come early or you will be walking a cool minute to get to the gates...

Fairplex is the home of L.A. County Fair in city of Pomona. It is more than just county fair, since the fair only last like 5 weeks. The rest of the year, they held many smaller events. Usually only use couple of the exhibit hall.

Parking is range from $10-15 depend on the event, there's really no other way get around. The bus doesn't really go here and really force you to use their paid parking lot.

There's no street parking anyway in the area. This place is a bit out of dated, and could just some remodel. It does stay its true theme of County Fair in all year around.

Not many known this, this was one of the location that possible Disneyland might be build. But because of the weather and kinda too far from most city that pull the plan off the table.

The 5k runs at the Fairplex are always amazing. My favorite is the Neon run.

The Fairplex is the site of LA County Fair and a lot of different other events, including the Holiday Half Marathon. I liked how large the parking lot was...seriously, it is HUGE! The people who work here really know how to get traffic going and I was able to get to my event on time. Fairplex is close to Bonelli Park so you can have a picnic at the park after you attend some events at Faurplex. The best pat of this place is the amazingly intricate train set. They must have spent hundreds of hours working out the details.
