This year we will not be offering Special Admission days, except for Senior Day AUG 29. This eliminates the pressure of having to come to the Fair on a certain day to save money on admission. You may purchase tickets day of at any ticketing gate.

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.
  • 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.

Tickets available at Etix is the official ticket seller of the Evergreen State Fair.
