Washington State Spring Fair Updates
(Formally Known as the Puyallup Spring Fair)
The Washington State Spring Fair starts in April (opening day is 4/7). This year the fair will run a bit differently then the last one (it was closed last year). It will be a hybrid event, with mixed drive through and walk up opportunities.
It will take place from 4/7- 4/11 and then from 4/14-4/18 this year.
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.
In past years there were Washington State Spring Fair discount tickets available, but this year the discount is limited to the ride and game bundle deal.
Alot has changed this year, and here is the scoop:
— the will offer a mix of drive through events, and step out activities.
— you will have the opportunity to get out of your car at certain stop points (like food, and shopping areas, as well as some attractions like pig racing, etc).
— you can do rides and carnival games in person, but will need to reserve a specific time slot for that as they are limiting capacity for it.
The things included with this years fair tickets are:
- Farm Animals
- Strolling Entertainment
- Brad’s World of Reptiles
- Daffodil Festival Displays
- Additionally, you’ll have access to Fair Food and Grab & Go Treats for purchase.
- Plus, choose one experience from DockDogs, Racing Pigs or Bingo!
Ride and Carnival Game entrance tickets are separate.
Monster Truck Ride Experience is also separate (per person)
Drive in Movies will also be offered as a separate event this year.
To Reserve Your Tickets –
This year you will pay by the carload vs by the person (except for Monster Trucks and Rides and Games). You will have to reserve tickets for a specific date, and buy them ahead of time to get in (they will not be selling tickets at the tickets windows like in the past.

- The cost is $30 per car for a specified entry time, and date of visit, or you can pay $50 to get in anytime during your date of visit.
- You will need to select any add-ons you want at time of carload purchase (ie if you want to to the Monster Trucks – you must add it now, it cannot be purchased separately)
The Ride and Game bundles can be purchased completely separate of the car load tickets for the drive through / get out events at the fair. Here is how the ride tickets work.
