Washington State Spring Fair Discount Tickets
(Formally Known as the Puyallup Spring Fair)
The Washington State Spring Fair starts in April (opening day is Thursday 4/11/19). This is a very popular event for families especially, as I’ve heard many folks around this area who prefer the Spring Fair to the big State Fair. Often the crowds are much less, but kids can still have a lot of fun with all the activities at the fair. The name has been changed to the Washington State Spring Fair for some time now, but it used to be known as the Puyallup Spring Fair, as the Fair Grounds are in Puyallup.
We have found Washington State Spring Fair discount tickets available right now if you are planning to go this year and want to save on your costs.
Note that the first day of the fair (4/11) kids get in free with food donation. Kids 5 and under will get in free everyday as well.
One thing that has changed this year, is that parking is only free on Thursday (opening day). You can also get a Ride Saver deal that is good opening day only too (it is for 6 rides for $19, so a pretty good deal). Between the kids get in free, free parking and ride saver deal, opening day is definitely the best value day to go!
Here are the discount tickets available::
Pay $69 to get Single Day General Admission for Two + 150 Ride or Game Tickets (it is a $99 value, so 30% off)

Personally I prefer the Spring Fair over the regular fair as it is generally less crowded and easier to navigate through attractions etc. The last few years the weather has been great, too, if I am recalling correctly. It used to be that it was a smaller version and that they crowds were quite a bit better than the regular fair, but it does seem like it is growing in popularity and getting bigger and more crowded each year (but still beats the crowds of the regular fair, so far, in my experience).
Free Things to Do at the Spring Fair ::
Besides getting ticket discounts, or getting in free on the free days, here is a list of free things you can do at the Washington State Spring Fair, so you can plan your trip to save as much as you can!
The Farm at Sillyville – The farm at SillyVille is new to the Spring Fair this year (although it was at the regular fair last year). Its a place that kids can come and learn about being on a farm with hands on activities, etc.
