Will you “Do the Puyallup” this year? Amazon Local currently has the following discounts available for the Washington State Fair if you plan on going! The Washington State Fair is what used to be called the Puyallup Fair. It will be running from 9/5 – 9/21 this year! There will be an opportunity to get in free on 9/5 with a canned food donation, but this  is generally one of the best deals we see if you want the ride tickets or special attractions passes to the Vision Dome.

The Washington State Fair is the largest single attraction held annually in the state of Washington and continually ranks in the top ten largest fairs in the world.

Here are a couple of discounted ticket packages you can get to the Fair this year!

  • $18 (up to $37 value) for two gate admissions to the Washington State Fair and two admissions to the Vision Dome attraction
  • $72 (up to $100 value) for two gate admissions to the Fair and a 150-ticket Ride & Game FunCard

Oregon Zoo Coupons – BOGO Admission Weekdays after 2pm

If you’re looking for a discount for the Oregon Zoo in Portland, the zoo is now offering Buy 1 Get 1 FREE admission when you head to the zoo on a weekday after 2pm. This is called the Zoo after 2 Summer Discount program and it will be going on through September 30, 2014.

The zoo is open until 6pm with the grounds open till 7pm till September 1st and then after September 1st, it will be open to 4pm with the grounds open till 5pm, so it still gives you a few hours to enjoy the zoo at a discounted price & most likely fewer people in the evening hours (from my experience at local zoos).

The Zoo after 2 discount is not available on weekends, holidays, Second Tuesdays and cannot be combiend with any other offers such as the Tri-Met transit discount & more.

They will be having another Sunset at the Zoo on August 20th, which is an evening of live music and family activities to enjoy the zoo after hours & meet the animals from the Wildlife Live program. The zoo is open till 8pm on this night.  So this is a great time to head to the zoo & enjoy the Sunset at the Zoo as well for discounted admission, too!
