"Hungry for fun? Let's all go to the Fair!"
Evergreen State Fair, Aug 25 - Sep 5 in Monroe 


The Evergreen State Fair is back! The entertainment, exhibits, food and fun are sure to be better than ever this year. While many Fair traditions are still in place, there are some other exciting features this year.

The website is the best resource for planning your visit, offering entertainment schedules, pricing, and visitor information as well. And for the first time ever, Evergreen State Fair tickets are available for purchase in advance online! This capability will increase efficiency of Fair ticket operations, as well as reducing wait time and lines for onsite ticket sales.


I'll be there on multiple occasions including Opening Day (8/25) and Armed Forces Day  (9/2). I'll also be there Saturday morning, September 3rd, to help judge Top Trophy Public Presentations by 4H students from around the State. Don't wait -- check your calendar now to see when you'll visit the Fair this year. Here is some basic information I hope will help get you started.


See you at the Fair!
