It's Fair Time!

Hey, this weekend is the start of the Fair! Starting Friday, it's non-stop fun and food and rides and concerts for a whole two weeks / three weekends.  And I'll be there right in the middle of it.  Probably not standing in the hours-long line at the fried twinkie booth.  But I'll be working our little artists shop in the grandstand - selling soap and other cool handmade stuff.

Advert blurb: "(Formerly called "The Puyallup Fair") Coming up in early September, the Washington State Fair is the largest single attraction held annually in the state of Washington. The Fair continually ranks in the top ten largest fairs in the world."

There is so much to do, people come back again and again - rides, rodeos, onion burgers, barns full of animals, Krusty Pups, exhibits galore, elephant ears, shopping, more fried food, evening concerts, oh yeah, and scones too.  More info on it all the Fair website.

Held at the fairgrounds in downtown Puyallup.  Dates are Sept 5 - 21st.

Hours: Mon - Thurs 10am-10pm, Fri 10am-11pm, Sat 9am-11pm, Sun 9am-10pm

Opening Day opens at 9am, get in for free before noon with a canned food donation.  See other deals and discounts here. 

Soapworks Studio is located in the Artists in Action building, on the ground floor of the Grandstand, near the Fischer Scone booth.  We're like a little store within the fair, with a central cashier for all of us.  Non-stop artist demos too.
