Our Go-To Guide For Optimizing the Washington State Fair!

Okay… Okay… We know the Washington State Fair doesn’t open until the end of August this year, but we’re just too excited to keep quiet any longer. Held in Puyallup, which is 35 miles south of Seattle and/or 10 miles east of Tacoma, they’re ideally located between the two major hubs for convenience to both.

Also referred to as the Puyallup Fair – because that’s what it was called until 2013 – the Washington State Fair gathers over one-million people during its main fair in September, which are staggering figures compared to its original attendance of 5,500 in 1900. Being so popular, the fair consistently ranks in the top ten largest fairs in the United States.

Starting August 31st, the Washington State Fair is set to end September 23rd during its 2018 fall season.
