It is a long-standing tradition at the Evergreen State Fair that on the opening day of the Fair we hold a food drive benefitting our local food banks. Our community never lets us down and together we have been able to offer thousands of meals to those in need.
In 2021, we were able to successfully host a drive through event that brought in 13,655 pounds of food and $2,847 in donations which benefitted the Volunteers of America Western Washington and the Snohomish County Food Bank Coalition.
2022 Fair Food Drive
July 16th Noon- 5:00pm
Opening Day Food Drive... but NOT on Opening Day
We are doing things a little different this year. Instead of offering daily gate admission specials, we are moving our Opening Day Food Drive to before Opening Day so that you can choose which weekday you’d like to save on admission to come to the Fair.
This drive thru event will take place in the Evergreen State Fairgrounds West parking lot, also known as the Red Lot on July 16 from noon to 5pm. For every 5 food items donated you will receive 1 Fair weekday admission ticket, limit 5 tickets per vehicle.
