Do the Puyallup…On a Budget!

Going to the Puyallup Fair this year doesn’t need to break the bank. The Fair has tons of promotions and deals to help you have a fun-filled day packed with adventure, for a price that won’t leave you feeling like you just got off of the Tilt-a-Whirl.

Make sure to pick up a map on your way in so you can hit all your favorite spots and remember our tips and tricks for a spending-conscious visit. You might even find yourself needing to come back for round two!
