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
