Washington State Fair Discount Tickets!

The Washington State Fair is what used to be called the Puyallup Fair. 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. It is coming right around the corner too. This years fair dates are September 2 to September 25th, 2022, and we are already seeing the deals roll out. The Fair will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesday 9/8, so make note of those closure dates when planning your visit.

It’s a favorite around here for families, but can add up with ride tickets, so this discount may come in handy.  Two of the most popular deals we usually find for the Washington State Fair are the:

  • Kids Free Days
  • Everyone Gets In Free
  • Ride Bundle 

**Student Tickets Update: 

Note that there has been a significant change in recent years to the student tickets the kids get at school. Student tickets are now for ages 6 – 12 (kids 5 and under are always free). Kids ages 13+ will now require an adult ticket (in the past, those student tickets where good for kids up to 18). I am not sure if this will remain true for the free student tickets that the kids get at school yet, so if any of you know, be sure to comment and tell us how that is working this year.

The BECU Kids Free Days will still be available to all kids 18 and under!

And we have the details on both of these offers below!

  1. My kids just got the free tickets for students at their Middle School and High School. The tickets say for “kids age 6-18” on it. So all kids that get a ticket through their school should be able to get free admission.
