The Evergreen State Fair is held for 11 days every August through Labor Day. The event at Evergreen State Fair Park celebrates the area's rich agricultural culture, traditions, and community. There is something for everyone at the Evergreen State Fair. It attracts over 330,000 visitors from all over the state of Washington.

Each year, the Fair has its own theme, and the 2024 Evergreen State Fair theme is 'Bright Lights, Summer Nights'. The organizers believe that this theme of light embodies everything that makes summer one of the best times of the year, like the rising lights from a concert stage, the vibrantly lit midway, or the moment of sunrise.
