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 2022, we were able to successfully host a drive-through event that brought in 17,516 pounds of food which benefitted the Volunteers of America Western Washington and the Snohomish County Food Bank Coalition.
2023 Evergreen State Fair Food Drive Information
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.
This year there are 2 ways to donate, thanks to our friends at Lee Johnson Auto Family!
June 15 - July 7, 2023 at one of Lee Johnson Auto Family's 8 Locations OR JULY 8, 2023 • Noon to 5pm West Parking Lot of the Evergreen State Fair Park (MAP PDF)
