Explore and celebrate Snohomish County’s shared, rich agriculture heritage, delicious food and drink, entertainment, artisan goods, and carnival rides by enjoying the Evergreen State Fair in Monroe. See a beekeeper, goat milker, expert ax thrower, soon-to-be urban farmer extraordinaire, champion pie eater, master of chicken agility, or soaring high above the fair on the Ferris wheel. Enjoy the wonder of experiencing something new, the sweet nostalgia of revisiting old favorites and the beauty of sharing all of this in community. All are welcome to wonder and wander at the fair.

New beer and wine gardens

Beer and wine will be allowed in the grandstand section of the concert venue. There will be a family section for those who would like to sit in that section with no alcohol. All grandstand seats are festival seating and are only $20-$30, including fair admission. Reserved VIP floor chairs and bleachers will have access to the beer and wine garden for the second year in a row. All tickets can be purchased at EvergreenFair.org. In order to enhance the fairgoer experience, beer and wine gardens will be available to guests 21+ every day of the fair, including at concerts and Speedway events.

First Building Listed on Snohomish County Register of Historic Places

The Shannahan Cabin, a favorite for 50 years when it was relocated on the fairgrounds, will be awarded the first building to be listed on the Snohomish County Register of Historic Places with a Plaque Unveiling on Aug. 22 at 11:30 a.m. in Frontierland. The Shannahan Cabin is a log cabin built by an early Snohomish County settler, Robert Shannahan. The cabin is representative of Snohomish County’s pioneer heritage and is one of the only remaining intact pioneer cabins in the county that is accessible to the general public.
