Nestled on 120 acres, we are home to the Central Washington State Fair....the original fair in Washington State! We are also home to the Yakima Valley SunDome and classic, historical buildings for your events year-round. Central Washington State Fairgrounds, now called State Fair Park, was home to the only "State Fair" Washington ever hosted. When the State of Washington realized they really weren't good at running fairs, they got out of the Fair business. July 1939, a group of local businessmen formed the Central Washington Fair Association. The same association continues to run the County-owned fairgrounds and the annual agricultural fair. We continue, in the legacy of those first Yakima visionaries, to strive to present a quality, family-rated Fair where we entertain, educate and celebrate.
