2023 Kittitas County Fair

We invite you to “Put on Your Boots and get Back to your Roots!” for our fairgrounds centennial celebration!
The fun begins on Thursday, August 31 through Monday, September 4.
This year we’re reviving some contests from back in the day to go along with our current favorites like the coloring contest and hay bucking competition.
We are excited to welcome back our favorite carnival company Paul Maurer Shows with their top-of-the-line rides! Purchase your presale discount tickets online or stop by the following locations: Fair Office, Super 1 Foods, Old Mill Country Store, Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce, or NKC Tribune in Cle Elum!
