Map of Pomona Fairplex and surrounding area

Directions: Fairplex is located in Pomona and is conveniently reached from all points in Southern California. Easily identifiable Fairplex signs are located throughout Pomona and neighboring communities to direct motorists. Directional signs are also prominent along nearby freeways. The Pomona Fairplex is most convenient from the I-10 freeway (San Bernardino Freeway). Going East or West on route I-10, exit Fairplex Drive, turn North (over the hill) and cross McKinley Ave. (stoplight) turning a wide left onto the Gate 17 entrance road. Once on the fairgrounds you will be directed to unloading and parking areas adjacent to Building 7. From the #57 Freeway you’ll interchange with the I-10 Eastbound and keep to the right as Fairplex Drive is the first exit and comes up fast. From the #71 Freeway exit Holt/Valley View and continue North on Fairplex Drive, crossing the I-10, and head to Gate 17.

Parking: As you enter Gate 17 at Fairplex, you will be directed to either the unloading area, the parking area, or the handicap parking area. Cost is $10 per day with in and out privileges Saturday and Sunday. There is no charge for parking on set-up Friday.

Food: A snack bar with hot and cold food and beverages will be set up in the Hall. Attendees may bring in their own food and drinks. No glass bottles or aluminum cans are allowed to be brought in.
