FOOD AND BEVERAGE
State Fair Park Catering is the exclusive food and beverage provider in Pioneer Hall, State Fair Room, and the Yakima Valley SunDome. Outside food can be brought into the Modern Living Building, only. Homemade food, only, is permitted in the Modern Living Building. No outside caterers (i.e. licensed business) are allowed on the grounds without prior approval.
State Fair Park can provide an A-FRAME sign for your event the day of your event. If you plan to hang your own signage/banners inside the buildings, please be certain to only use the Damage Free Hanging Command Hooks and/or painters tape.
Placing your event on our Reader board can be requested; however, public, ticketed events for the Yakima Valley SunDome take precedence.
