Thurston County Fairgrounds (Lacey)

Lacey

Centrally located in Western Washington, the Thurston County Fairgrounds in Lacey is our biggest small venue event. We are packed to the rafters, sometimes with merchandise spilling out into attached tents. 

Thurston County is located at the southern end of Puget Sound in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Majestic Mount Rainier and the rugged Cascade Mountains are nearby to the east, while Washington’s 

Pacific Ocean coast is just an hour’s drive to the west. Thurston County is 60 miles south of Seattle, Washington and is 100 miles north of Portland, Oregon. With the state capital Olympia right next to Lacey, shopping, lodging and dining options abound.

Things to do in the Area

Washington State Capitol

The State Capitol is nearby in Olympia. Stop by for some photos or have lunch in the nearby cafes. Perhaps be inspired to send a few emails to legislators who don’t support the Second Amendment. Though most of us certainly don’t approve, its important not to forget, the capitol is now very much a “gun free zone.” 

Priest Point

Also in nearby Olympia is Priest Point featuring 314 acres of nature wildlife and short walks. Take some pictures of the beautiful scenery including Ellis Cove. A nice walk in nature before or after shopping at the Lacey show will really get the blood pumping.
