Back in the saddle: Welcome back to the Evergreen State Fair!

It’s happening! The Evergreen State Fair returns this year with lots of family favorites and fun for everyone. Running from Aug. 26 to 31 and Sept. 2 to 6, it’s a great time to come out with the whole family for some good old-fashioned fun!

With everything that’s happened in the last year or so, organizers are excited to offer their community safe, outdoor fun.

“We are so happy that we can welcome our community back and that we can open the gates again!” says event Marketing Specialist, Amy Craven.

Plan ahead and save

With your paid Gate Admission and Carnival Wristband, there are tons of things to experience around every corner at the family-friendly fair. Better yet, plan ahead and buy early and you’ll save money too!

Check out the great music on the courtyard stage and make sure to take a look at the on-line schedule so you can make the most of your visit.
