“I’m proud to announce this year’s fair is here today thanks to the support of the local community, leaders in Enumclaw and King County,” said County Councilman Reagan Dunn, who represents Enumclaw, in a media release. “This year the fair has even more exciting attractions and continues to serve as a valuable outlet for local youth agricultural programs.”

“The weather looks great, we’ve got some great new food vendors, an exciting line up of new acts, and a wonderful fair in store for this weekend,” said Scott Gray, Enumclaw Expo Center executive director.

The fair runs from Thursday, July 13 through Sunday, July 16 at the Enumclaw Expo Center at 45224 284th Ave. Attractions include 4-H livestock shows, exhibits, live music, rides, food and the famous racing pigs.
