Washington State Fair PASSES FOR HOMESCHOOLERS

Fair Runs August 30 – September 22

*Please Note Fair Closed on Tuesdays & 9/4

The Washington Homeschool Organization has once again coordinated with the Washington State Fair for free tickets to homeschoolers. Please precisely follow this procedure for getting tickets:

First, contact your local school district for tickets. Most districts have included homeschoolers in their ticket order from theWashington State Fair.

If the district does not honor your request for tickets; send the following to PEGGY WATSON, EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM COORDINATOR, 110 9th Avenue SW Puyallup, WA 98371-0162:

  1.  A copy of your “Declaration of Intent to Provide Home-Based Instruction”* This must have the school district logo on it. If you have 6 & 7 year olds, you just need to send a note to the fair listing the name and age of the child.
  2.  Give the reason why the district did not honor your request for tickets. Include the name and phone number of district person you spoke with.
  3. Self-addressed stamped envelope.

Requests must be postmarked no later than Tuesday, August 28th.

REQUESTS RECEIVED AFTER THIS DATE WILL BE PROCESSED AS RECEIVED AND NOT GUARANTEED TO ARRIVE TO YOU BEFORE FAIR IS COMPLETED.

One ticket will be issued for each student age 6 through 18, and one adult pass per family. Children under 6 years old are free. The tickets may be used any day, including Saturday and Sunday.

Please note: Washington State Fair staff has advised us that there is some abuse of free fair tickets. Some homeschoolers are receiving tickets from multiple sources. Please take only one ticket per student from one organization.
