Commercial Vendors & Food Concessionaires

Imagine more than 250,000 people visiting your business, all in a ten-day time span. WE do the advertising to draw people to the Fair! We have great success stories from vendors that participate for the first time or those that continue to return, year after year. We also have success stories by some businesses who swear that their businesses were launched because of their exposure at our Fair.

You too can introduce your business and interact with the citizens of Central Washington & beyond by securing a booth for the upcoming Fair. The majority of booth space is inside our wonderful Yakima Valley SunDome. We do offer exterior booths (under canopies) outside by the Grandstand, adjacent to the Ag Building and on the Main Plaza. Bulk space is sometimes available too for those with large items (spas, vehicles, RV’s, etc.).

Gail Ragland, Commercial Exhibits and Food Concessions Manager, may be reached by email or phone at: or 509.248.7160 x105.

This packet includes general information about booth pricing, fair hours, selection process, items required to operate a booth, insurance requirements, and payment schedule for commercial vendors at the Central Washington State Fair.

Please read the packet in its entirety before submitting a space application.
