Get your snack on at the Evergreen State Fair – nachos count as a vegetable, right?

Billed as the largest single attraction in Snohomish County, the Evergreen State Fair has been getting bigger and better since the early 1900s. Come for 12 event-filled days of carnival rides, a Pro-West Rodeo, a logging show, auto races, crazy animal races, petting zoo and concert headliners including Joan Jett, Kenny Loggins, Trace Adkins, and more.

Home of one of America’s Top 10 Rodeos with the Tour Finale of PRCA’s Xtreme Bulls competition, this event is worth the two-hour drive east.
