Mission Statement

The Northwest Washington Fair Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The Mission of the Northwest Washington Fair is to provide:
  • education regarding agriculture - past, present and future
  • experiences with positive competition
  • enjoyment of wholesome entertainment, social interactions and lasting memories
Our five core values are Youth, Community, Agriculture, Education, and Entertainment.

The Northwest Washington Fair Association will organize an annual Fair that will promote an appreciation for our agricultural heritage, provide education about the role agriculture plays in life today while providing youth with a hands on experience. The annual fair will be a social gathering place where family values will be honored and individuals of all ages will be entertained. The mission of the association will further be accomplished by generating revenue via rental of the facilities during the off-season, developing promotional activities to encourage off-season usage, and promoting agriculture as a way of life.

The Northwest Washington Fair Association is an organization in which the staff, Board of Directors, association members, volunteers, contributors, and Whatcom County citizens all have a sense of ownership and pride.
