The Northwest Outdoors Alliance - Washington State Fair - Go Play Outside

The Northwest Outdoors Alliance operates the 'Northwest Outdoors Adventure' Exhibit at the Washington State Fair.

At The NW Outdoors Adventure exhibits, you can visit many displays highlighting the resources and outdoor recreation opportunities of the Pacific Northwest, helping people to Go Play Outside!

The Northwest Outdoors Alliance strives to offer free, interactive, family activities at the Washington State Fair. Kids can catch a fish in the trout pond, shoot a BB gun, learn about boating safety, test their archery skills and more, all in one place.

Located in the Expo Hall under the grandstands near the gold gate on the fairgrounds, it is a great spot for families to experience a piece of the natural world while kids get a chance to do some hands-on learning in a variety of fun ways.

See us at the Washington State Fair on September 3 - 26, 2021, and the 2022 Spring Fair in April, 2022.
