Washington State Fair Tickets

Washington State Fair Tickets Discounts (formally known as the Puyallup Fair)!

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 1 to September 24th, 2023, and we are already seeing the deals roll out.

It’s a favorite around here for families, but can add up with ride tickets, so this discount may come in handy.  A few 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: 

Looks like they have brought back the student tickets for this years fair, all the way through 18 again!

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! You can find a big list of more Fairs and Festivals in the Northwest here too!

One Comment

  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.
