More than 1 million people flock to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup (pronounced pew-al-up) every September. For 17 days, fairgoers enjoy more than 15,000 attractions, including an adorable Pig Palace, exotic animal display and mobile bar and craft brewery, while eating famous fair scones and earthquake burgers.
Other notable Puyallup events include the colorful Daffodil Festival in April and Meeker Days, celebrating Oregon Trail pioneer and town founder Ezra Meeker, in June.
