Pacific Northwest Fairs and Festivals – Puget Sound Edition

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

I’ve teamed up with Angela from Frugal Living NW & Karrie from Happy Moneysaver once again to bring you a roundup  of summer festivals & fairs around the Northwest!  I listed a few of the main 4th of July events, but didn’t list all all of them  as pretty much every town seemed to have something going on. Even better, I found this comprehensive list of 4th of July events around the Puget Sound area.

If you see an event that I missed, leave a comment & I’ll add it to the post! Let us know what your favorites are, too, and what you like about them!

Here’s what you’ll find:

  • Thrifty NW Mom – Festivals & Fairs around the Puget Sound area (from Whatcom County – Lewis County)
  • Frugal Living NW Festivals & Fairs  for southwest Washington & western Oregon
  • Happy Moneysaver – Festivals & Fairs for central/eastern Washington and central/eastern Oregon

Don’t forget that you’ll find the best free or frugal ($5 or less) family events & activities going on around the Northwest, as well as national events, each Friday morning! Check out the full list of fun & frugal family events from previous weeks.

    Great list. Thanks for doing this. Only thing is auburn is king not pierce county. Also, maple valley kids day but I don’t remember what day.

  2. Jen says

    Ha-I totally knew that, too, living close to Auburn. That’s what I get for adding that event in at midnight last night! Thanks, I changed it to King County.

  3. Darcelle says

    Island county consists of Camano and Whidbey only. The rest of the island are in San Juan County. : )

  4. Darcelle says

    The is also the Whidbey Kite Festival, Highland Games, and The island County Fair.

  5. Chantelle says

    There is also Lake Fair in Thurston County not quite sure of the dates but it’s usually the week before orthe week after the 4th of July!

  6. Hallie says

    There is the Morton Logger’s Jubilee. 2nd full weekend in August every year. Don’t know the county but it’s great fun! Lawn mower races, bed races and then of course the logger’s show!

  7. Jen says

    Thanks for all the input guys! I knew I’d never get them all, but love having more ideas! :)

    Capital lakefair in olympia, starts the evening of July 13 (Wednesday) and goes thru Sunday July 17th (ending with fireworks). We like coronation thursday night the car show Friday night, kids day in the park saturday, ending at 4, and the parade Friday at 5.

  9. says

    A really cool and FREE event is Sunday, July 3rd fireworks at Emerald Downs in Auburn. You can come for the day and enjoy the races (admission $ for adults only) OR just come after the races and watch the fireworks for free. We set them off from the center of the track so they are right there and one of the best shows Ive ever seen!! Its very crowded but there is lots of parking, and bring a snack to enjoy in the car after the show to waste some time in the exiting traffic!

    There is also Lake Fair for Thurston County. I am not sure of the exact dates this year.
