PuyallupDeep Fried Butter, Piglet Palace, & Everything Else You Can’t Miss at the Washington State Fair
September 7, 2019
Every September, people from all around the Puget Sound region flock to the Washington State Fair (aka the Puyallup Fair for those of us who have been here awhile). The fair is a BIG deal around here—it’s one of the largest fairs in the entire country, and every year, ~1 million people attend. (Yes, seriously!)
There’s something for everyone here, whether you’re heading to the fair just for the indulgent food or you want to pet the piggies. Here’s just a FEW not-to-miss highlights if you plan on heading to Puyallup this year!
One of Amber’s very favorite things about the fair is the Piglet Palace. Stop by to see the cutest little piggies, and some of them are even born at the fair. Awww!
We’re all about awesome views when it comes to the rides. The ferris wheel and the swings offer photo-worthy views of the entire fairgrounds, and we recommend going at night when you can see all of the lights.
The rodeo offers a classic fair experience (go at least once to really get that fair experience!), and the fair’s concert series also attracts some big names each year. Tickets to these types of events also include admission to the fair (which is $14 for adults).
