Located in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, the Washington State Fair Events Center features a campus-like setting for year ‘round use. Trade shows, conventions, workshops and special functions are ideal events housed in this state-of-the-art Puyallup, Washington venue. The 165-acre setting offers ample parking for attendees, easy freeway access, and stress-free logistics for event promoters. The events center is a private-nonprofit organization.

The Washington State Fair is the largest fair in the state and in the Pacific Northwest, and one of the biggest in the world. The 20-day fair starts the Friday of Labor Day (closed Tuesdays), and welcomes more than a million guests who enjoy top-name entertainment, animals and agriculture, feature exhibits, booths, the arts, food and rides. The Fair started in 1900, and offers the tradition of the past, while celebrating the future. Each April, the 8-day Washington State Spring Fair is held, featuring animals, agriculture, booths, free entertainment, food and rides. The Spring Fair started in 1990, and is the perfect celebration of spring.

In addition to the fairs, the event center produces Oktoberfest Northwest in October and Holiday Magic in December. Oktoberfest Northwest is the largest Munich-style celebration at a venue in the state and features three days of great food, drinks, entertainment and activities for all ages. Holiday Magic is a festive winter experience filled with lighted displays, ice skating, live nativity animals, festive food and drinks, rides, a night market and more!

In July 2022, The Taste Northwest had its inaugural year at the Washington State Event Center. Formerly, The Taste of Tacoma, a popular food and entertainment event since 1986, it has found a new home. The three-day extravaganza welcomes a diverse array of restaurants, food trucks, music and other activities for all ages.

The Washington State Fair is a private, not-for-profit, 501-C3 corporation. It receives no government subsidy, and pays city and state taxes. Any proceeds are invested back into the Fair for improvements.
