Fair Honoree


There are so many dedicated individuals who make the Evergreen State Fair amazing. Those who dedicate hours, days, months of their lives every year to make sure, every booth, display, shop, show or activity runs smoothly.  We know many of those people, but so much is done behind the scenes that we do not get a chance to recognize. Consider nominating a person you know who makes the fair extra special. The Evergreen Fairboard will select one Fair Honoree for 2020. They will be honored at the Annual Fair Kick-Off Dinner in March; ride in the Fair Days Parade; be the guest of honor at the Opening Day Ceremony and other special events.  Nominations are due by January 31, 2020.
