THE 79th ANNUAL FAIR DAY’S PARADE IS ….FUN FOR THE WHOLE HERD! MONROE’S FAVORITE SUMMER TIME EVENT WILL FEATURE APPEARANCES AND PERFORMANCES FROM THE MONROE HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADERS, THE DRIFT AND DRAG CARS FROM EVERGREEN SPEEDWAY, THE SEAFAIR PIRATES, SMOKEY THE BEAR, MULTIPLE PRINCESSES, BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB, VARIOUS EQUESTRIAN TEAMS, RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE AND MANY MORE. THIS IS A PARADE YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS!  JOIN US IN MONROE ON AUGUST 27TH AT 11 AM TO BE A PART OF ALL THE FUN!

To the delight and amusement of thousands of families, residents and guests more than 60 groups of local businesses, organizations, associations and groups will make their way down Main Street from 178th Ave SE to N. Blakely Street showing off their HERDFUL of pride and enthusiasm for their community! We even have several new faces in town!  We have a new Chamber of Commerce Director, several new Board members and new business owners have brought fresh ideas to our Parade and celebration surrounding the Evergreen State Fair.  There is a different starting point this year as well because of the construction at Park Place Middle School, but people who are watching the parade will not even notice.

The Monroe Chamber of Commerce and Committee are so pleased to announce the return of the ever popular Fair Days Market and our new partnership with Poppy Seed Productions! Due to the increase in participation and overwhelming support from the community there will be two markets set up and opening at 9am, one in Downtown on W. Main St. and one at the Monroe Christian School.  The Markets will close shortly after the parade to allow residents and visitors plenty of time to get their Evergreen State Fair time in! Downtown Monroe and Monroe Christian School are only minutes from the Evergreen State Fair and all attendees are encouraged to head on down to the Evergreen State Fair after the Parade.

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.  Please visit our website: www.choosemonroe.com for more information.

The Monroe Chamber of Commerce would also 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 Chamber of Commerce, Republic Services, Speedway Chevrolet, Monroe Public Schools, Walmart, Poppy Seed Productions and of course the many volunteers that help keep the parade moving and organized this amazing event would not be possible. THANK YOU!

There are still a few vendor spaces available please visit Poppy Seed Productions to sign up and join us Saturday, August 27. Website
