After a year’s absence due to the COVID pandemic, officials from The Evergreen State Fair announced on Thursday, May 13, that plans are underway for an in-person fair in Monroe, Washington. The 2021 dates are Thursday-Tuesday, August 26-31, and Thursday-Monday, September 2-6.
This year’s theme is “Back in the Saddle Again – Open for Fun in 2021”. It’s “a cheerful metaphor of dusting oneself off after the challenging ride that was 2020, and the anticipation of reuniting members of the community and fans of
the Fair after making it through 2020 together,” the press release announcement reads. “With increased sanitation, capacity limits and adherence to health guidelines like social distancing and mask usage, the Fair staff has plans in place to keep everyone safe and healthy while at the Fair Park.”
Details about the fair haven’t been announced yet because officials are waiting for updated health and safety guidance. What we do know now is that there will be “advance purchase admission and parking e-ticketing, electronic building capacity message boards and other innovations.”
Monroe is 33 miles northeast of Seattle.
