RULES, REGULATIONS & SAFETY

SAFETY

We are planning for an in-person Fair event in August 2022. We continue to closely monitor the state and local authorities and their recommendations for social events. The Pierce County Fairgrounds team is working to ensure a safe environment for everyone during the Fair this year. We are constantly in conversations, evaluating the latest guidance and protocols as they emerge from the national, state, and local levels. The health and safety of everyone is always the Pierce County Fair’s top priority. The Fair will implement procedures and guidelines to protect public health. All policies will align with current government mandates.

CDC guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals:

Proof of vaccination is not required to attend the Pierce County Fair.

The Pierce County Fair understands that safety is first and foremost on the minds of fair volunteers, exhibitors, and guests. It is the intent to provide a safe and secure environment for all. However, to do so, the Pierce County Fair needs the assistance of all volunteers, staff, and even guests to provide that environment.

If you witness unsafe conditions or activities, please contact a Security Staff member, or Fair Volunteer, or call 253-847-4754.
If you witness an emergency, please call 9-1-1 first and then make contact with the proper Fair Department.

The Pierce County Fair asks that Fair volunteers and patrons refrain from bringing items of great value that they simply may not need at the Fair. In the event of an emergency, the Fair has completed a Fair Emergency Management Plan (FEMP).

Historically, the people involved in Agricultural Fairs possess traditional values and honor. At the Pierce County Fair, that tradition continues. However, the Pierce County Fair is open to the public and those entering the fairgrounds may not necessarily possess the same values. Thus, we would like to take a moment to remind you, the fair exhibitor and guest, to take precautions against those who are looking to take advantage of others.


The best way to avoid problems is to provide good customer service, greeting, and making eye contact with those in your exhibit area.


  • Wear comfortable shoes!
  • Right before going into the fair….take out your camera phone and take a picture of your children! That way if you get separated from them, you will have a recent description of your kids and can remember EXACTLY what they are wearing.
  • Be attentive to those approaching/entering your exhibit area.
  • Keep personal items out of sight. Cameras, cell phones, and other electronic devices are easily concealed.
  • At night, secure your exhibit as best as possible. Cover items with sheets or tarps. If in a building, please lock, but only use a lock that has been approved by Fair Management.
