The best way to travel from King County to The Fair!

Do the Puyallup! Special Sounder trains will run on two Saturdays, Sept. 15 & 22, serving nine stations between Everett and Puyallup. From Puyallup Station, you can jump on a free Pierce Transit shuttle bus to The Fair’s exclusive Sounder entrance.
Two trains will take passengers between the Snohomish County stations of Everett, Mukilteo and Edmonds and Seattle’s King Street Station. Trains also stop in Tukwila, Kent, Auburn and Sumner before reaching the Puyallup Station destination. Two round-trip trains will run between all locations and Puyallup.

After The Fair, head to the Fair’s Red Gate to take the shuttle back to Puyallup Station. Allow yourself plenty of time to catch the train at the Puyallup Station.

To return by train, there are two departure options, with trains leaving Puyallup Station at 5:50pm and 6:50pm. For more information about schedules see Sounder To The Fair, or see the full schedule here.
