A Rich History – Established 1909

The Wahkiakum County Fair is a truly unique event. For over 100 years we have been proud to showcase the many skills and talents within our picturesque county. Our goal is to create an opportunity to allow residents to showcase their beautiful crafts, nurtured livestock, and carefully grown produce. We hope to not only entertain but also enlighten, as our way of life is a part of history, which we take great pride in.
