Monroe, Wash., Jan. 5, 2017 – The Evergreen State Fair, Snohomish County’s largest event, is held in the 12 days leading up to Labor Day.  It’s time to mark your calendars for the 2017 fair, August 24 – September 4, so you can join in the celebration themed “Harvest the Memories.” 

The fair theme is a tradition almost as old as the fair itself, and the theme is used throughout the fair. Exhibitors, vendors and participants are encouraged to use the fair theme in their entries and displays.

  • 2017 - Harvest the Memories 
  • 2016 - Fun for the Whole Herd
  • 2015 - Picture the Fun
  • 2014 - Experience Animal Magnetism
  • 2013 - For the Kid in All of Us
