MONROE, Wash., September 23, 2021 – The Evergreen State Fair safely opened the gates for eager fairgoers this summer after a year off due to the pandemic. While the 2021 Fair was a little different, fair staff, participants, vendors and volunteers got back in the saddle for a successful ride August 26-31 and September 2-6. With proactive safety precautions in place such as limited capacity to allow for social distancing, mostly outdoor activities, an indoor mask requirement and over 300 hand sanitizer stations placed throughout the 193-acre fair park, the Evergreen State Fair used every health and safety measure available.
The Evergreen State Fair is undoubtedly a regional summer favorite, and 2021 was an important year to reconvene and have fun together again. Fair officials succeeded in their goal of limiting capacity to just over 50% of 2019’s record attendance: 181,229 people came through the gates to indulge in fair food, see the animals, listen to live music, ride the rides and enjoy this important yearly event which embodies the spirit of Snohomish County. Families, friends, couples, seniors, kids, entertainers, farmers, lumberjacks, vendors, and animals reunited to celebrate the magic of the fair, with a little more shoulder room.
Below are a few highlights from 2021:
Thank you to everyone who supported the fair community this year. We can’t wait to see you at the next Evergreen State Fair, August 25 - September 5, 2022! More about the Evergreen State Fair at EvergreenFair.org.
