The LA County Fair, the mega-midway-esque, competition-quirky, critter-cute spectacle, will celebrate its centenary in 2022 and its first spring affair.
It’s true that the Pomona Festival has long been a staple of late summer, but the event, “one of the country’s largest provincial fairs,” opened on May 5, a date change caused in part by cancellations in 2020 and 2021. (when a smaller fall food festival took place).
So rest assured that appetite-seeking adventurers, those carnival-goers who are the first to get to the fantastic food, are ready for the latest culinary creations, the whimsical, photo-worthy, on-a-stick, in-your-belly treats that the 2022 scholarship has to offer.
Check out some of the temptations below, including, you bet, the staple snack of the spring feast: Chicken Charlie’s new Cherry Kool-Aid Chicken Sandwich.
