COVID Response & Community Resources


UPDATED 8/31/21 10:40 AM

As of now, the Evergreen State Fair will go on as scheduled with modifications to programming and increased efforts to keep guests safe. Join us August 26-31 and September 2-6! 

After thoughtful consideration and guidance from state and local health officials, we have determined that our event can safely take place this year for those who choose to attend. We encourage all fairgoers to first evaluate their own potential risk of exposure to COVID-19 before visiting, knowing that vaccines remain the best protection from COVID-19. In addition, we encourage fairgoers to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 when attending the Evergreen State Fair by wearing masks indoors, practicing social distancing, and washing hands regularly. 


The health and safety of our guests, participants and community is our highest priority. Look for these proactive changes implemented to protect public health throughout the fair park:  

  • Robust Health & Safety Plan 
  • 300 hand sanitizer stations around the fair park 
  • Increased cleaning/sanitizing procedures 
  • Lower daily capacity 
  • Limited indoor exhibits/vendors with more spacing between vendors for social distancing 
  • Gary Weikel exhibit/vendor building will have increased ventilation with roll doors opened 
  • Most vendors/events/entertainment are outdoors  
  • No gate specials in order to disperse attendance throughout the 11 days 
  • Following the state of Washington Mask Mandate for public indoor spaces 
  • Free N95 masks are available for all guests upon request 
  • We encourage cashless/contactless transactions 
  • Safety signage posted around the fair park 

We will continue to work with local and national public health agencies, monitoring any new developments daily and making modifications accordingly. The Evergreen State Fair exists to strengthen Snohomish County and bring people together. We are dedicated to being part of our collective well-being and look forward to our annual celebration.  

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Guests should attend only after evaluating their own health risks. Your entry onto the Evergreen State Fair property constitutes your understanding of these risks, and you voluntarily assume such risks related to exposure to COVID-19. Snohomish County cannot be held liable if you contract COVID-19. Help protect yourself by following safety protocols, and state and local public health recommendations and mandates.
