Thank you for a successful 2016 Evergreen State Fair!
We at the Evergreen State Fair thank all of the volunteers, sponsors, fair-goers and staff for making the 2016 Fair a great success. We couldn't have done it without you!
We are proud we helped kids laugh and parents smile while enjoying favorite fair food, carnival rides, entertainment, bands, animal exhibits, rodeos, car races, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, a youth circus, commercial vendors and more.
Overall, 342,631 people attended the fair this year
to see the best in locally grown produce, animals, crafts and auto races. It is the second best-attended fair behind 2014 when we had 348,630 visitors. Our record attendance day was Sunday, September 4, with 54,266 (previous record was last year with 50,091).
The incredible vegetable displays demonstrated that growing local food is really a part of what makes living in the northwest so great.
The Fair Cares Food Drive collected nearly 24,000
pounds of food and a $700 donation from Snohomish County Lutheran Churches on the Fair's two Fridays when the "entry fee" was three cans of food per person until 1 p.m.
We look forward to seeing you next year, August 24-September 4, 2017, when our theme is "Harvest the Memories".
