NOTICE: Effective September 13, 2021, Washington State has updated its indoor/outdoor mask mandate, requiring masks to be worn at all times indoors and outdoors at gatherings of 500 people or more.

We realize that some of our guests may not agree with this mandate, but it is crucial that we adhere to this. Please bring your mask and wear it during your visit. Thank you for understanding that this is a mandate we must follow in order to have events and programs on our grounds.

The health and safety of our guests is our top priority. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By attending events at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. If you are feeling unwell, please stay home. All guests may be subject to preventative measures including temperature checks, social distancing, and proper masking etiquette depending on the state of the community’s collective health at the time of the event. Fair management will have the final decision on any and all health considerations. Guests deemed to violate any guidelines in the sole discretion of Fair management will be subject to immediate ejection from the grounds without refund. An up-to-date communicable disease policy will be posted on this page at all times. Please reference this webpage prior to your visit. Once on grounds, please adhere to all posted guidance during your visit.
