The First Ever Cityscape Fairground
LAWF® is presenting the first ever Cityscape Fairground! Distinctive pavilions and urban settings will be spread throughout Los Angeles County, located near and accessed by various metro stops along the transit system. The plans are specifically designed to encourage a grand scale transition from a car-dependent culture to wide-spread adoption of mass-transit. The theme of the fair is “LA: The Connected City™” and seeks to do it on every level – from the physical to the cultural. The unprecedented layout encourages city-wide connection like never before!

World’s Fairs Are Big
World’s Fairs change the world for the better! Dr. Ferris’s spectacular wheel and Mr. Bell’s voice-transmitting machine were both unveiled at World’s Fairs. The incredible IMAX and the touchscreen were unveiled in 1980 and 1984 at World’s Fairs. World’s Fairs leave shimmering memories on the minds of countless millions and leave in their wake legendary art, vast urban improvement and a stunning inventory of technical innovation. They invigorate communities and stimulate local economies. Few American’s are sufficiently aware of the magic, wonder, and power these events hold. LAWF® is about to change that.
Ours Will Be Bigger
With over 100 countries, 1,000 companies and 100 million visitors participating from around the world – LAWF® is going to be the biggest, World’s Fair EVER! At its core will be LA’s new multi-billion dollar transit system which inspired the theme: The Connected City™.

We’ve Got Game Changers
The founders of LAWF® are superhero agents of change with seriously impressive track records. They are action-oriented visionaries who know LAWF® will position LA as a future-focused city all Angelenos can take pride in. LAWF® was founded as Flexible Purpose Corporation in August of 2013 by a team that met leading railLA, a non-profit that promoted high speed rail in California. They shared a passion for new and improved LA that inspired the founding of LAWF® and has continued to spread like wildfire ever since.
Global Citizens in a Connected City™
How we address the challenges that face our city today determines the quality of life for generations to come. Today our beautifully diverse neighborhoods are separated by a web of jammed freeways. If LA can connect all of our countless distinct communities – physically and emotionally on a global stage – then perhaps the world will see first-hand how it can be done. LA is ripe for this metamorphosis. LAWF® will be the catalyst and will provide a stage on which The Connected City™ can be introduced to the world.
Participation Matters (Yes Yours)
This event is for the people by the people! Every effort is a vote for change, from corporate sponsorship to grassroots social-media-buzz-building. We have an existing network of investors, officials, celebrities, non-profit leaders, artists, and community organizers involved in the execution of this great production – but we need you! To be the most culturally inclusive, socially empowering, and economically beneficial event ever… we need full community participation. Any and all support is encouraged, appreciated and celebrated.
