Washington State Fair canceled due to coronavirus concerns

Rides at the Puyallup Fair glow as the sun goes down Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2012. This year’s Puyallup Fair will come to an end on Sunday, as well as its name. The Puyallup Fair was originally called the Valley Fair and in 1913 it switched to the Western Washington Fair and in 1976 became the Puyallup Fair. The fair draws more than a million visitors over a 17-day run. Next year it will be receiving a new name, the Washington State Fair, a change designed to reflect the bigness of the event and avoid a word that trips up many newcomers.
