Fair Food Drive
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.

Opening Day Food Drive... but NOT on Opening Day
We are doing things a little differently again 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.
There are TWO ways to donate this year!
Thanks to our sponsor Lee Johnson Auto Family, you can drop off your donation at one of 10 Lee Johnson Auto Family Dealerships starting July 1 through July 15th. Here is a list of participating dealerships.
Join us here at the Evergreen State Fair Park on July 16 from Noon to 5 pm in the West Parking lot (see map).
