The Puyallup Fair kicked off Friday, Sept 10 and runs through the 26th. We’re excited to be exhibiting (and selling) a limited-edition selection of stoves and spas at our Rich’s booth. Once the Puyallup Fair ends, these products will no longer be available.
Plus, during Fair season, we offer “Fair Pricing” — our best prices of the year at Rich's five Puget Sound Showrooms in Tacoma, Southcenter, Silverdale, Bellevue and Lynnwood.
If you’ve never been to the Puyallup, you’re missing out on the fair of a lifetime. Officially named the Western Washington Fair, the Puyallup is celebrating its 110th anniversary and is the world’s eighth largest fair.
Here are tips to help you “free your glee” while you’re doin’ the Puyallup:
If you enter through the Green Gate, you’ll want to visit the sheep, poultry, and horse barns, and then head over to the nearby Food Court.
Enter through the Purple Gate and you’ll be right at the SillyVille Train Station and kiddie rides.
Enter through the Blue Gate, and you’ll start out at the Showplace Stage, where you can catch some great entertainment. Be sure to visit the Beef and Dairy, and Livestock barns, and the Commercial Exhibits.
Enter through the Gold Gate, and you’ll be right in front of the Fountain Plaza Stage (magic shows, comedy acts, juggling) and the Columbia Bank Concert Center, where the main Concert Series is held will be to your right.
The Red Gate leads directly to the Western Heritage Center and Merchant’s Building (to your left), the Floral Building and Carnival area (to your right), and the Restaurant Building (straight ahead).
No trip to the Puyallup would be complete without Fair Scones filled with fresh berries and slathered with whipped cream.
You’ll also find yummy artery-clogging fare such as funnel cakes, onion rings, curly fries, elephant ears, caramel apples, cotton candy, fudge, and everybody’s favorite, deep fried Twinkies.

And since Puyallup is a bit off the beaten track, you might need driving directions to get there.
Have a great time doin' the Puyallup, and be sure to stop by Rich's exhibit and say hi!
