Each year, the Washington State Fair brings all kinds of fan fun, food and rides to Puyallup, but this giant fair also brings in a full roster of entertainment. From headlining concerts to a rodeo to free family-friendly shows, you’ll find a bit of everything on stage – and 2018 is no exception. Concerts include everyone from Chicago to Florida Georgia Line to Macklemore and the Rascall Flatts, while the free entertainment brings in newcomers as well as old favorites like Ricardo the Magnificent and Tina Marie the hypnotist.
