Karen Griggs

president's message

As the 2021 Capital Lakefair President it is my honor to welcome you to this year’s festival.  We are celebrating our 64th year and our theme represents 64 years of tradition in our community, so we are “Lakefair, Keeping the Tradition.” I grew up in the Olympia area, and have been a part of Lakefair my whole life, it was always a summertime tradition that we as a family looked forward to every year.  We always had our spot planned, in front of the Brown Derby restaurant, and we would watch the bed races, and we would look forward to the Grand parade, and the fireworks show was always the perfect way to end our family tradition as well. 
 
Capital Lakefair started as a community event 64 years ago, to celebrate the waterfront and to bring people to the downtown area.  The first celebration was in 1957, with a “Lady of the Lake” and she rode on a boat in the parade.  It has grown over the last 6 decades to what it is today, a place for families and friends to come together for some food, carnival rides, an incredible parade and entertainment.  Capital Lakefair would not be what it is today without the support of our community and the local businesses. We do realize that we have had an incredibly challenging year with the pandemic and look forward to bringing you a safe tradition to help celebrate summer. We have a group of dedicated volunteers that are planning on an incredible Lakefair to help celebrate our community.
 
I would like to personally invite everyone to come help us celebrate 64 years of Lakefair, July 14-18, and keep the tradition alive.
