As large as their state and as diverse as their interests, the people of Washington come together once a year for an unforgettable celebration. At the Washington State Fair, more than a million Washingtonians come together to have fun while getting in touch with state culture and history. Held in the town of Puyallup, this event features rides, shows, concerts, and all of the state’s most delicious cuisines. This year’s fair will be held from September 1st to the 24th, and will feature:
Rides to Remember
The Washington State Fair 2017 will offer the opportunity to experience our state’s history and a thrilling ride all at once. Participants can brave the Classic Coaster, an attraction first unveiled in 1935 and still running safely today. This coaster shows you how previous generations of Washingtonians had fun and enjoyed the fair, connecting you with your state’s proud history.
The fair features a number of more modern coasters. These include the Rainer Rush, a ride traveling at 60 miles per hour and exerting a 5.8 g-force on your body, as well as the Extreme Scream, a tower launch that drops you 20 stories. There is also a carousel and other rides to appeal to participants with less extreme tastes.
The 2017 Washington State Fair offers a full sampling our state’s rich musical legacy. The event will feature a number of talented performers from countless different genres, including gospel, country, and “Hillbilly rock.” This year’s fair will also host a performance by Danny Vernon, a musician renowned for his uncanny Elvis impression. Thus, whether you seek to get in touch with the Evergreen State’s cultural history, experience different sound styles, or simply listen to good music, you can do it here.
