Jun 25 2020, 11:58 am

The Washington State Fair is an annual good time and draws huge crowds of people who are fans of fair food, thrill rides, carnival games, artisan markets, and of course, the summer concert series.

As things slowly begin to reopen, the Washington State Fair remains intent on providing folks the entertainment they’ve come to expect — pandemic or not. Which is why they’ve announced a drive-in concert series that will provide quality acts, from the safety of your own vehicle.

Though currently scheduled for an early September reopening, the Washington State Fair offices remain closed for the time being.

“We are carefully looking at what adjustments can be made to safely reopen our events center for interim events and the Washington State Fair, as we move through the phased plan,” reads an update published by the fair on June 5. “We will provide details on our safety measures and any other changes as we progress in the planning process.”

Next month, the grounds will be hosting a drive-in concert series featuring acts like Bryan White, James Otto, Lila McCann, Mitch Rossell, and other to-be-announced artists.

“Get tickets and bring your carload to enjoy a night of great music and fair food under the stars in The Fair’s Green Parking Lot.”

Rules and regulations include having no more than eight persons per car (each with a legal seatbelt), tickets are purchased on a four-person per car basis, parking is first-come-first-served, and all concession service will adhere to county and CDC guidelines.
