2021 FAQ

Read our FAQ PDF (link above) for specifics on tickets, parking, health & safety, events, what will be different this year, exhibits, RV/Camping, vendors and sponsors.

Will you require guests to wear masks? Masks are required indoors, following the state of Washington Mask Mandate for Indoor Public Spaces. While not required by the mask mandate, we highly recommend wearing a mask outside while at the fair park. Please reference our COVID-19 webpage for all of our health and safety guidelines.

Does a pre-purchased ticket guarantee entry? Yes, if you pre-purchase your tickets for any fair event (either online or at the ticket booth) you are guaranteed entry. Your hand will be stamped for re-entry, which also guarantees entry, but please be advised that if you leave and parking is full when you return, you are not guaranteed a parking spot. 

Will I be turned away if I walk up to the ticket booth? We are lowering capacity due to limited staffing this year. This means that there is a chance that if you do not pre-purchase tickets and instead walk up to the ticket booth and the fair park is at capacity, the gates will be closed until capacity has lowered for adequate service levels to be maintained. We will announce any closures 1 hour before closing the gates via twitter (https://twitter.com/evergreenfairwa) and the bottom of our homepage and announce reopening 1 hour before gates re-open. We highly recommend pre-purchasing tickets (which guarantees entry), coming early in the day and coming on a weekday if possible. Due to many factors, the Evergreen State Fair will look different this year with fewer vendors and limited daily capacity. We are very grateful to be hosting a fair and support our vendors and community this year, even with the current strain on resources across many industries. Please come celebrate and support the fair with us this year, knowing things will be different in 2021.

Notice To Secondary Ticket Buyers

As the summer event season approaches, The Evergreen State Fairgrounds reminds our customers of the importance of purchasing event tickets from authorized sources:

  • If you purchase tickets from secondary ticket vendors (often called “resellers”), you may pay substantially more than if you had purchased directly from the Fair or the Fair’s authorized ticketing source, www.Etix.com. 
  • The Fair does not guarantee tickets purchased from unauthorized ticket resellers. This means that if a ticket is counterfeit or has been resold multiple times, you may end up with a duplicated ticket barcode that has already been validated, thus invalidating the ticket for you. 
  • The Fair does not honor, replace or refund invalid tickets. Your confirmation receipt is a valuable tool, so retain your electronic and in-person purchase receipts until the event has taken place.
