Big Washington

Who is Big Washington?

Every September, the Washington State Fair plays host to over one million enthusiastic guests. And now we’re excited to welcome the state’s first party animal, Big Washington!

Part of our state’s legendary bigfoot clan, this gentle giant left his forest home to celebrate everything that makes Washington great at the “biggest party in the state.” 

He knows that only the Washington State Fair has the big thrills, big food and big fun to satisfy his monstrous appetite. From showing his wild side at the state’s biggest rodeo and world-class concerts, to taking on the exciting rides, mind-blowing exhibits and mouth-watering fair foods, Big Washington likes to party big!

And now, guests of the Fair will be able to walk in Big Washington’s footprints and meet our state’s biggest legend face to furry face.

No matter your size, there’s a little Big Washington in all of us. So come on, join the fun. Party Big Washington!
