Message to our guests regarding COVID-19

Office Closure

The Washington State Fair administration offices will be closed March 26 through April 7, 2020. 

2020 Spring Fair

After thoughtful and careful consideration, and with the safety of our guests and employees as our top priority, the Washington State Spring Fair (April 16–19, 2020) is canceled. We are in constant communication with our local and state partners as this situation evolves.

Our mission statement says we are “Washington’s home to gather and celebrate for generations to come.” Our commitment is to remain that home. At this time, we are doing our part to keep our staff and community as healthy as possible.

Our thoughts are with the families and communities impacted by the COVID-19 virus. Please stay safe and healthy.

If you purchased tickets for the 2020 Washington State Spring Fair or any Motorsport Mayhem show, you will be refunded. Please see our refund policy below.
