Stay Just Minutes from the Washington State Fair

It features a world-class rodeo, a star-studded lineup of performers, and a wealth of entertainment for all ages. The fairgrounds are also home to the annual Washington State Spring Fair, which hosts its own assortment of attractions every year.

Spring Fair: Every April. Check the Fair’s website for dates.
Fall Fair: Starts the Friday of Labor Day weekend and runs for 21 days (closed on Tuesdays)

Indulge in Fisher Scones and Earthquake Burgers

Since 1915, the Fisher Scone has been synonymous with the Puyallup Fair experience. In fact, some visitors make their way to the fair just to get their hands on these scrumptious pastries, filled with honey butter and raspberry jam and baked to perfection in massive rotating ovens. Almost equally popular is the legendary Earthquake Burger, a multi-pound masterpiece of beef and cheese so powerfully delicious that it has been known to cause seismic activity!
