For 65 years, Capital Lakefair has been a Thurston County tradition since the first event in 1957. Over the years, Lakefair has helped raise millions of dollars for local non-profit food vendors, craft vendors, and more than $400,000 in scholarship funding for students from local high schools to pursue furthering their education.
The volunteers of Capital Lakefair would like to extend a special thank you to the businesses, individuals and partners who provide essential support that makes this community celebration possible year after year!

We might be small as far a cities go, but we have plenty of activities for every interest. With a rich history, vibrant culture, modern amenities, and a beautiful setting on the Puget Sound, Olympia is a great place to visit for work or play.
Sparkling lakes and saltwater, densely-forested parklands, championship fairways, miles of hiking and biking trails, and an adjoining 3,700-acre wildlife refuge make enjoying nature as convenient as it is exciting. Towering above it all, the unbelievable magnificence of Mt. Rainier.
Tumwater is filled to the brim with captivating history and vibrant nature. With traditions rooted in brewing, artesian wells and the Old Brewhouse serve as reminders of the area’s significance as Puget Sound’s first American settlement.
This picturesque Northwest community is nestled along the Deschutes River as it cascades through three sets of falls to meet Puget Sound.
