The expansive, eco-friendly space known as Fairplex hosts a bounty of events throughout the year. Most famous of these is surely the LA County Fair, a four-week affair filled with live entertainment, animal attractions, and fun competitions. But multiple other exciting events call the venue home as well, from car shows to art openings to adult-only events such as the LA on Tap Beer Festival.
But what visitors to the event might not know is that virtually every moment of merriment at Fairplex directly contributes to the wellbeing of their community. That's thanks to The Learning Centers at Fairplex, which strives to serve unmet educational needs through multifaceted programs for children and adults. Its Child Development Center provides specially designed educational programs to children regardless of income or background, while the FairKids Field Trip Program grants local classrooms with hands-on learning opportunities that might not be available otherwise due to school funding cutbacks. As children get older, opportunities such as the Junior Fair Board Leadership Program help them hone business and networking skills and provides college scholarship money, and the Career and Technical Education Center helps prepare students for real-world careers. The Millard Sheets Art Center engages both children and adults with opportunities to witness and create art through exhibitions, educational programs, and workshops.
