About this collection

Here you can enjoy more than 13,500 photographs showing the scenes, people, rides, events, and many attractions of the Washington State Fair from its founding in 1900 through 2011. Originally called the Valley Fair, it was renamed the Western Washington Fair Association in 1913 and known for decades as the Puyallup Fair. The Washington State Fair officially adopted its current name in 2013. Although the name of the Fair has changed over the years, it remains the largest single attraction held annually in the state of Washington, and continually ranks as one of the largest fairs in the world.
