How to get Washington State Fair tickets

Although the Fair hosts two annual events – The 4-day spring Fair, and the 17-day September Fair, the facility is used year round for various seasonal festivals, races, car shows, and sporting expositions.

If you’ve purchased a ticket to a concert or show performing at the fair, you may already have an admission ticket separate from your concert/show ticket, but if you don’t then you will have to purchase your admission separately.
