BBQ Playoffs

Are you a fan of fresh barbecue? If so, you won’t want to miss the barbecue playoffs. Come witness 40 teams competing to win the grand prize for the best brisket, best pork, best chicken, and best ribs of the year. On April 12-14, you can purchase a delicious sample of any barbecue you choose. You could even try to predict the winner yourself!


All Alaskan Racing Pigs

You’ve heard of dog sled races and horse races, so now, make way for — you guessed it — pig races! You may not picture fuzzy little pigs when you think of enjoyable sporting events, but you’ll be blown away when you see them compete in the 50-yard hurdles and the 100-yard dash. No matter how the races turn out, you simply can’t have a boring time when you see these cute piggies do what they do best. There are races every day of the fair!


Brew Park Live

For those who enjoy live country music and Washington craft beer, Brew Park Live is the event for you. Each night of the fair, treat yourself to one of eight locally crafted drinks while you dance along to the music of locals musicians Miller Campbell, The Nash Brothers, Leah Justine, and The Olson Bros. Brew Park Live is free with your fair admission for any guests 21 or older. Remember to drink responsibly!
