2010 L.A. County Fair -- The Hottest Los Angeles Foodie Destination

POMONA, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) - Angelenos are rushing to the L.A. County Fair to feast on countless culinary creations, from deliciously wacky to gourmet delights. With amazing exhibits, entertainment, concerts and rides all in one place, the Fair is the perfect destination for foodies to indulge in the best.

Must-try Fair eats include famous Chicken Charlie's deep fried PB&J, Dr. Bob's handcrafted ice cream plus chocolate covered, bacon wrapped Oreos, taking the salty-sweet trend to the next level. Also Fairgoers can enjoy a plethora of healthy and tasty eats, from grilled mahi mahi and homemade hummus to grilled turkey legs.

New this year find the most popular food trucks in L.A., including Calbi, Fishlips, Tastymeat and Buttermilk trucks. Instead of racing around town trying to spot a gourmet restaurant-on-wheels, these food trucks are parked right inside the Fairgrounds each weekend.

Those overwhelmed by the vast selection of food can find help from this year's official LA County Fair Foodie, Stef Andrews, at her popular L.A.-based blog www.WeHeartThis.com. Living up to her title, the Fair Foodie has practically tried every Fair delicacy, from deep-fried frog legs to kimchee quesadillas.

No culinary destination is complete without award winning wine from this year's Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition. It's the perfect way to wind down the day before Girls Night Out at the Boyz II Men and En Vogue concert right on the Fairgrounds.

Not to be outdone, for Boys Day Out bring in Fair food and beer into the Grandstand to watch the exhilarating sport of kings, horseracing. Enjoy free Grandstand seating and get ready for a thrilling afternoon of betting on the ponies. 

The L.A. County Fair has countless ways to save with constant promotions. Foodies can enjoy the vast assortment of culinary delights at the Fair and give back to the community at the same time. Fair guests who bring five cans of Ralphs brand food to the Fair on Fridays from opening to 6 p.m. receive an admission ticket for free, with all cans donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

The L.A. County Fair runs Sept. 4- Oct. 3, 2010 and is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
