Win Tickets to the Puyallup Fair, 'Get Your Happy On!'

Patch is giving away dozens of tickets to the Puyallup Fair. Just sign up for a free email newsletter below for a chance to win.

We've heard the questions: What's been missing in my life these past few months? How can I put an exclamation point on my summer? And can that exclamation point include fried food on a stick?

Here at Patch, we have your answer. Better still, we'll give it to you for free.

Sign up for a Patch newsletter today and you will be entered to win one of dozens of free pairs of tickets to the Puyallup Fair, which runs Sept. 7-23. Even better, if you tell us why we should send your whole family, you'll get a chance to win the Patch Family Pack: 

• four fair tickets (kids 5 and under are free, by the way)

• a Patch tote bag to hold those fair souvenirs

• assorted Patch goodies such as magnets, pens and balloons

• and a story and photo of you and your family on Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Patch. 

Here's how: Simply fill out the form for a chance to win a pair of tickets. If you want the family pack, write us a note in the comments section at the end of this story explaining in 200 words or less why Patch should send you and your family to the state's biggest fair. 

Each Thursday for the next three weeks, through Sept. 13, we'll hand out one pair of tickets and one family pack to lucky winners from Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. Winners will be notified by email. 

See you at the Puyallup!

You should send me and my family to The Fair because my 7 year old just hit 48" tall and can go on all the big rides now. Because my twin one year old boys will love to see all the animals. Because my wife and I love to see all the craft items. Because we all want to see the new widdle piggies. We love the Fair!

I spent many happy hours as a child preparing for, competing in, and WINNING at 4-H Home Economics Demonstrations at the Puyallup. My now adult children have only heard about it, and my adult grandson is clueless. What fun it would be to give them a visit to the place that brought so much joy into my life.

My family is from Shoreline Wa I was born & raised there. Due to a job offer my daughter & her family had to relocate to Vancouver WA three years ago. I followed them here two years ago since I was missing them (My daughter & my four grandkids). We miss Shoreline & going to the Puyallup fair! We would love to go!!

I'd like to take my wife and our youngest daughter to the Fair this year. Our eldest daughter is attending college in California so it's now just the 3 of us. I plan to come home with a sack of Fischer scones and a stomachache from consuming all the greasy Fair food and then going on the rides with our teenage daughter! Can't wait!

We took our kids (6 and 4) last year for the first time and they haven't stopped talking about it since!! My 6-year old son has been saving his money all year to spend at this year's fair. He and his little sister are still talking about the dragon roller coaster, the fun house, the food, the tent full of musical instruments, the carriage horse demonstrations, the chickens and rabbits and piglets, and most of all the hot tubs. When they discovered we were planning on going back this year they freaked! I hope we can go; the economy has made it harder to find jobs in our fields and winning tickets here would be like winning a trip to Disneyland.

Me & my late husband loved to do the Puyallup . Usually we would come by ourselves one day then bring the kids and grandkids another day. He passed away in 2008. I have only been back once since he passed but would love to take my family to enjoy a day full of memories at the fair.

We had such a magnificent time at the Evergreen State Fair--the animals, rides, delicious food, and demonstrations; and have only heard about the Puyallup Fair being even more fantastic! The Evergreen State Fair has several days with free or discounted tickets, so it has been affordable, but the Puyallup is a bit more for us with the downturn in the economy. We would dearly love to go!
