JULY 14 - 18, 2021
Capital Lakefair has been a Thurston County tradition since 1957, raising millions of dollars for local non-profit food vendors and more than $400,000 in scholarships for young women from area high schools. Now more than ever we're asking for our community to reach out and help support this longstanding south sound tradition.
As a community first organization, we are asking that you help Capital Lakefair survive and thrive well into the future.
For 64 years, Capital Lakefair has been a Thurston County tradition since the first event back in 1957. Over the years Lakefair has raised millions of dollars for local non-profit food vendors and more than $400,000 in scholarships for young women from area high schools. While we are not able to hold Lakefair this year, we’re getting an early start on planning for an even bigger and better event for the 2021 season.
To accomplish this, we would like you to be a part of our planning process and invite you to take a short survey available here. Your feedback will be valuable for future decision making and help steer the course of this community celebration. By completing the survey you will automatically be entered for a chance to win a variety of prizes, winners will be selected at random and notified via email and/or phone with details.
If you’re able to donate, Lakefair would greatly appreciate your support. You can make a donation of $25 or more to get a free 2020 Lakefair t-shirt and other official merchandise while supplies last.
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!
