I found some nice deals to the Spring Fair in Puyallup you might want to check out if you’d like a discount or deal to the Spring Fair (aka the Washington State Spring Fair).
I actually prefer the Spring Fair to the big one in the fall. It has a more old-fashioned fair vibe, and I love all the free things, like watching the pig races. I think it’s an especially nice fair to do with littles.
This year’s fair runs April 19th-April 22nd from 10AM-10PM (2PM-10 opening day and 10AM-8 closing day).
Regular Admission Prices
Regular admission for adults is 12.00 at the gate or 10.00 if you buy online before the 18th. Students 6-18 are 10.00 or 8.00 with advance purchase. They sometimes come home from school with a coupon for a few dollars off. There kit also sometimes a good one in that blue Val-Pak envelope you get in the mail. Kids 5 and under are always free.
As I mentioned, I did find some deals that are definitely worth a look (note that these are all my affiliate links).
Groupon Deals on Admission and Rides or Admission and Slamfest or Monster Truck entry
First, I found this Groupon deal good for admission and rides. You can get a single day admission for four with a 250 ticket ride fun card good for April 19th-the 22nd for 121.00 This is 30% off the regular price. Or you can get a single day admission for two with a 150 ticket ride fun card for 69.00. I think this is worth considering if you know the kids are going to want to do quite a few rides. You can go here to check out this Groupon deal.
Admission Deal from Goldstar
If you just want admission you also might want to take a look at this offer on Goldstar.
It gets you an adult admission for 6.50 or a student admission for 5.00. There is a 3.00 fee that gets tacked on, but it’s still a good deal, especially if you just need a deal on admission. I also didn’t see any restrictions, so if you wanted to do something like get discounted adult tickets and then go on opening day and get the kids in free with a food donation, I don’t see why you couldn’t do that.
Goldstar is a ticket reseller, and I’ve used them myself with no problems.
Before you get in on any of the deals above, you may want to check the fair site for other offers.

What to Do
We’ll have more details on what’s new at the Washington State Spring Fair in a future post. Definitely make sure to check out the new Aussie Kingdom where you can see and interact with kangaroos, wallabies, wallaroos, and other Australian wildlife. It’s free. Kangaroos!
Also be sure to check out the StoryBook Village. Imagine a children’s museum with a storybook theme, and you’ll get the idea. Returning favorites include the Creative Kids, pig racing, the diving dogs, and all kinds of baby animals.
