Grays Harbor County Fair sets record for attendance

Elma, WA – The Grays Harbor County Fair saw record attendance this year.

Grays Harbor Fairgrounds Manager Mike Bruner tells KXRO that Saturday’s Fair attendance of 24,555 set a new single day record for the Grays Harbor County Fair. 

He says that was part of a week that set a new record of 72,011 that beat the previous record of 67,866 which was established in 2017.

Saturday’s mark eclipsed the former single day record set on Saturday of the 2017 Fair, of 23,075 and Bruner says “it smashed the 2018 Saturday attendance of 17,776.” 

Wednesday’s attendance of 11,462 was good enough for the second highest Wednesday in the fair’s history and Friday’s attendance of 14,541 was also the second highest for a Friday at the fair.

Thursday’s Fair attendance was 10,585.

The attendance for Sunday was 10,868 which was down 2,525 for the day, as compared to 2018, but it was still plenty good enough to establish the new overall attendance record. 

Bruner says “We would like to thank all of our fantastic volunteers, our awesome sponsors, our exhibitors and all of the fairgoers that helped make this a very special fair.”
