Evergreen State Fair hosts Fair Food Drive July 1-16

MONROE, Wash., June 30, 2022 – The Evergreen State Fair is hosting its annual Fair Food Drive early this year on Saturday, July 16, 2022, from 12:00-5:00 pm in the west parking lot at the Evergreen Fair Park in Monroe. With support from Lee Johnson Auto Family, drop-off options are also available July 1-15, 2022, at various Lee Johnson Auto Family locations around the region. By donating five or more non-perishable and unexpired items at the drop-off locations or at the drive-through event, the donor will receive one ticket for weekday admission to the 2022 Evergreen State Fair. Limit one ticket per person and five tickets per car. Cash donations do not count towards tickets. Donations will go to the Snohomish County Food Bank Coalition.

In 2021, the drive-through food drive was a success which brought in 13,655 pounds of food and $2,847 in donations which benefitted the Volunteers of America Western Washington and the Snohomish County Food Bank Coalition.

Having the food drive early instead of on opening day of Fair, which has been a tradition in the past, will disperse the usual crowds on Special Admission Days and eliminate the pressure of having to come to the Fair on a certain day to save money on admission. Once participants get their ticket, they can then choose which weekday to enjoy the fair.

Suggested non-perishable and unexpired donations include:

  • Diapers
  • Baby wipes
  • Hygiene items/toiletries
  • Canned vegetables, fruits, beans, meats
  • Pasta
  • Peanut butter
  • Rice
  • Shelf stable milk
