 Parking throughout the grounds is $10 per day (with the exception of Senior Day parking is $5.00).  Parking is available on our grounds via the Main Gate and the South Gate, as well as the Train Gate for overflow parking.  ADA parking is located at both gates. The Interstate Fair provides handicapped accessible parking spaces, more than code requirement, on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Public Address System

The PA system is used for informational and emergency purposes only. The PA system cannot be used by the public for paging. Emergencies should be reported to Security.

Service Animals

Service animals that have been individually trained to perform tasks or do work for the benefit of a person with a disability are permitted at the Interstate Fair. Further defined, the tasks or work the animal does must be directly related to a person’s disability. Signal dogs (those that assist deaf or hard of hearing guests) must wear an identifying orange collar per Washington State law.

Emotional support animals, comfort animals, and therapy dogs are not service animals under Title II and Title III of the American Disabilities Act. Other species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are also not considered service animals.

As of January 1, 2019, anyone misrepresenting an animal as a service animal will have to remove the animal from the premises and may have to pay a $500 fine (RCW 7.80.120). This applies to anyone refusing to answer authorized questions from Fair and Expo Center Staff or a law enforcement officer (RCW 49.60.214).

Will Call tickets will be available beginning on Friday, September 8 through the close of the Fair on September 17 at the Main Ticket Booth (farthest South ticket window) located in the Main Parking Lot off of Havana Street. Look for the Will Call signage.  You can access the Will Call Ticket Booth from the South parking lot through the "Buzz Way".  Photo identification will be required to claim tickets placed in Will Call.
