    Bring lots of money for all the yummy food. Best ride and entrance deal is sold before the start of the fair. Get online befoe you go, and check the schedule. It helps to plan your visit.  more »

    Now that it is the State Fair I find it way too commercial and expensive. I miss the days when you knew everyone and didn't break the bank! I have pictures of a jail scene of my grandfather and dad an...  more »

    Parking situation is not very ideal but then when there are so many people, who wants to complain. The place is really huge and has a good number of exhibits. You can easily spend the whole day and there will be still more to see. Definitely a must try if you stay in Washington. Looking forward to seeing it again this year.

    Was at the Washington State Fairgrounds to teach a class for an event. Once inside it was nice, but it was very difficult to decipher from the outside and driving around where the front was. And when we found it, it looked closed. This was partially due to the event not having proper signage on the outside. This caused us to park a great deal away and carrying a heavy load to get inside. When we got inside we asked one of the workers if they had a cart or anything and they said no, then later seen the same worker with an empty cart. It looks like a great place to have a larger event like the state fair but for this time, it was ok.

    Awesome, exciting, great food, friendly staff. Overall a great experience! We were grateful for the electric scooters you can rent for my mom who has bad feet/ankles. The electric scooter made it possible for her to come and enjoy the fair with us!

    I try to make it to every spring and fall fairs! This is a great place to go for carnival food, big rides, sideshow style games, and shopping for everything from clothes to arts and crafts. If you like animals at all, be sure to look into the agricultural shows; there's always a petting zoo and plenty of exotic things like llamas and camels. Be sure to book tickets online in advance for a discount and arrive early to get good parking.

    The spring fair is less crowded than the fall State Fair. It's still got Fair Scones, but less animal exhibits. The art displays were nice as were the STEM project displays. The merchants areas were less packed so you could walk normal speed and still see and enjoy the booths.
