Washington State Spring Fair Updates

(Formally Known as the Puyallup Spring Fair)

The Washington State Spring Fair starts in April (opening day is 4/14). This year the fair will be back to running normally & back for 2 weekends as well.  Tickets go on sale on Thurs March 10, 2022!

The Spring Fair will take place during weekends from April 14-16 & 21-24, 2022. It is back to its normal event, too, after last year’s hybrid event, so that’s great news to hear!

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. 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.

Personally I prefer the Spring Fair over the regular fair as it is generally less crowded and easier to navigate through attractions etc. It used to be that it was a smaller version of the main fair 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).
