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!
