What’s a more classic way to celebrate summer than with state and county fairs? Washington has several fairs, some in Seattle, most out of the city, and each unique in its own way. Here are 3 classic fairs you can check out in Washington this summer.

Seafair Weekend

Seattle’s ultimate water-loving celebration is back this year with hydroplanes, the Blue Angels, a log boom, a parade, and more. It’s time to plan ahead and find a friend with a boat or rent your own so that you can enjoy all of the entertainment from the water.

When: August 4th-6th, 2023

Evergreen State Fair

The Evergreen State Fair is another classic fair experience. It’s not quite as big as the Washington State Fair but definitely worth attending if you love the end-of-summer carnival experiences. Expect rides, fair food, entertainment, and more!

Washington State Fair

The Washington State Fair or Puyallup Fair for real Washingtonians is probably the biggest fair of the year. It’s your classic American state fair experience with plenty of farm animals, rides, live performances, and of course fair food.
