The 85th Annual Fair Day’s Parade is all about our “Little Moments, Big Memories”. The Fair Day’s Parade brings a festive atmosphere to the community of Monroe. The whole town shows up because the Fair Days Parade is the official kickoff that the Evergreen State Fair is in town! It’s a wonderful showcase of local bands, drill teams, sports teams, businesses, non-profits and first responders all coming together to celebrate all that is Monroe in the summer. Whether this is your first parade or your 50th, there is something for everyone. Just follow the herd to downtown Monroe in the morning, then head on over to the Evergreen State Fair in the afternoon.
To the delight and amusement of thousands of families, residents and guests, more than 70 groups of local businesses, organizations, associations and groups will make their way down Main Street from 179th Ave SE to N. Blakeley Street showing off their pride and enthusiasm for their community.
We are pleased to announce the return of the ever-popular Fair Days Market starting at 9:00 am in front of the Wagner Performing Arts Center. The Market will close shortly after the parade to allow everyone plenty of time to get their Evergreen State Fair time in.
For those wanting to make a weekend of the event, there are plenty of great places to stay at and take in all the great events and activities the Evergreen State Fair and our great city have to offer. Learn about Monroe's lodging options here.
The Monroe Chamber of Commerce would like to send out a huge Thank You to all the Fair Days Parade major sponsors, contributors and supporters. Without the support of organizations such as the City of Monroe, Evergreen State Fairgrounds, Monroe Public Schools, Republic Services, Speedway Chevrolet, and of course the many volunteers that help keep the parade moving and organized this amazing event would not be possible.
Volunteers are needed and much appreciated. Please email Kelly Warren, Operations Manager, for more information on the parade, or to volunteer.
