The Puyallup Spring Fair is happening this year, just a little differently.
The annual event will be a hybrid drive-thru and “step-out” event; dates are April 7-11 and 14-18. Tickets will be limited and must be purchased in advance online.
Puyallup Spring Fair organizers promise “fun things to see, unique experiences, animals, entertainment and, of course, fair food!”
Admission is by the carload. Attractions will include many traditional fair experiences: farm animals, strolling entertainment, Brad’s World of Reptiles and Daffodil Festival displays. Admission includes a choice of these three activities: DockDogs, racing pigs or bingo.
Additional activities, available for an extra charge, include monster truck rides, carnival rides and games and a drive-in movie on Friday and Saturday nights.
Ticket pre-sale starts Friday, March 12, for Fair E-Club subscribers.
Neither the Puyallup Spring Fair nor the late-summer Washington State Fair took place in 2020 as gatherings were banned because of the coronavirus. The 2021 spring fair, although with a different format, seems a welcome sign of both spring and the winding down of the pandemic that has changed everything over the past year.
