Northwest Washington Fairgrounds



“The 2021 Fair will have more to experience than anyone could accomplish in one day, and we want to see the community visit multiple days for one low price,” Pickering added. “Going from one free stage in 2019 to five free stages in 2021, adding an expansive free kids’ play area, and offering a diverse Bank of the Pacific Grandstand Entertainment Series all build to what will be the biggest and best Northwest Washington Fair yet.”

Pickering was quick to note that the Fair already has plans to offer a safe experience for all guests. “In addition to reducing frequent touchpoints and exploring contactless payments, we are proud to be pursuing accreditation with the Global Biorisk Advisory Council to be recognized as a STAR facility. The accreditation process will ensure we are implementing the most up-to-date and effective cleaning and sanitization practices throughout the fairgrounds.”

The Northwest Washington Fair will take place August 11-20, 2021. Presale tickets are available online only at; public on-sale tickets are available online or by phone at (360) 354-4111. The Fair Office will be closed to the public per the order of the governor. However, the best prices are available online.

‘Party in the Dirt’ rounds out a diverse lineup for the fair, including hip-hop superstar Nelly (“Dilemma”) and America’s Got Talent winning ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer.
