Did you know our fair began in 1937? With the exception of four years during WWII, it`s been held every SINGLE year since then (well, except for 2020...!) We can`t wait to open the gates and welcome you back on July 24th -- who`s coming? ...

Would you believe it if we told you that it`s National Buy a Musical Instrument Day? Honestly, we rolled our eyes too -- but The Today Show said it first, so we guess it`s legit! What better way to celebrate your new investment than to play on our small stage at the fair?

We`re still accepting applications -- link in bio. You know what to do!

Happy Monday!

We`ve got a special request for you -- did you know we`re in need of only TWO MORE superintendents? That`s right, our fruits and veggies could use some love. If you`re a passionate gardener, green thumb, or farmer, we`d love to hear from you! Please reach out to us at fair@cowlitz.wa to get started on your journey to achieving your fair dreams.

We love walking up and down the aisles of our horse barn during fair season -- our equine friends get the VIP treatment with decorated stalls, fact sheets, and some even wear their Sunday best all week long with glitter, braided manes and the WORKS!

What are you most looking forward to at the Fair this year?

+ They can turn their ears 180 degrees, which makes them masters of hearing
