Evergreen State is not virtual for 2021
Snohomish County will open the 11-day Evergreen State Fair at the Evergreen State Fair Park in Monroe August 26-31 and Sept. 2-6.
In person. Not virtual.
This year's theme is "Back in the Saddle Again – Open for Fun in 2021." Fair officials say there will be increased sanitation, capacity limits and adherence to health guidelines like social distancing and mask usage.
There will also be changes such as advance purchase admission and parking e-ticketing, electronic building capacity message boards and other innovations.
"Everyone looks forward to the Evergreen State Fair, and after the cancellation in 2020, we couldn't be happier to see this important community event come back," said Snohomish County Council Chair Stephanie Wright of Edmonds.
"With the proper health and safety guidelines, it will be a fun, festive, and safe fair."
