Happy New Year  
from the
Evergreen State Fairgrounds! 
  We wish you joy & happiness throughout 2016

THANK YOU, volunteers, sponsors, fair goers and everyone else for your support. We hope you had a great time this year at the fairgrounds.  We would not be one of the best fairs in the country without your support and dedication! 

Highlights in 2015 included  the Spring Carnival, improvements to the Evergreen Speedway, performances by popular artists at the annual fair and nearly 41,000 pounds of food collected for the local food banks through our "Fair Cares Program".  
 
Exhibitors from across the region showed off their products celebrating the area's agricultural heritage. Overall, 321,322 visitors enjoyed great food, great entertainment and saw the best in locally-grown produce, animals, crafts and auto races.

We hope you will all join us again in the new year at the many  events happening at the fairgrounds all year long, including our next Evergreen State Fair Aug. 25-Sept. 5, 2016.
