About


The Enumclaw Expo Center (formerly the King County Fairgrounds) was transferred from King County to the City of Enumclaw in 2006. The Expo Center is comprised of 72 acres with a variety of multi-use buildings, grass midways, parking lots and arenas that are versatile enough to accommodate most any event. Our friendly staff, reasonable prices and beautiful location has drawn many events to our venue. Annual attendance at the Expo Center events is over 150,000 and events range from weddings to concerts and dog shows to motorcycle rallies.

The Expo Center is home to several large events including the Enumclaw Wine & Chocolate Festival, Collector’s West Gun & Knife Show, Children’s Ride, King County Fair, Seattle Scottish Highland Games and Clan Gathering, Creation Festival and the Olympic Kennel Club Dog Show, Enumclaw Oktobeerfest and the Enumclaw Festival of Crafts and Gifts. The historic Field House, a beautiful wood building built in 1940 is popular for weddings, fundraisers, business retreats and dances.

The Enumclaw Wine & Chocolate Festival is hosted by the City of Enumclaw every February. This two-day festival celebrating “the finer things in life” has grown to include more than 20 wineries, shopping vendors, delicious food, guest speakers, entertainment and a retail wine shop where you can purchase the wines you’ve tasted.

The last weekend in June is that Children’s Ride that is in its 18th year of bringing together the motorcycle community in support of Seattle Children's and their mission to eliminate childhood illness and injury.

The King County Fair is the longest running fair West of the Mississippi and includes traditional fair attractions including 4-H exhibits, carnival rides, vendors, food, entertainment and more. The Fair is a four day event in July.

Highland Games is celebrating its 67th year in July 2013 with bagpipe competitions, traditional Scottish games like the caber toss, the kennel with Scottish dog breeds, Celtic Arts Showcase, musicians, authentic food, vendors and so much more.

Creation Festival is the nation’s largest Christian Music Festival. This three and a half day event in early August includes camping, concerts, vendors, food and fellowship. This event could be “the highlight of your summer…maybe your life.” This event brings over 15,000 people from all over the Western United States and Canada to Enumclaw.

The Olympic Kennel Club is a member of the American Kennel Club. Their annual show the second weekend in August attracts thousands of dogs and is the fifth largest dog show in the country. This is a great opportunity to see a variety of dog breeds (some you’ve probably never heard of). Spectators can enjoy the show for free (there is a minimal fee for parking).

The Enumclaw Pro Rodeo and Concert is in its second year at the Expo Center and is held the third weekend in August. This event brings Pro Rodeo riders from all over the country and is associated with the NW Pro Rodeo Association.

Collector’s West Gun & Knife Shows are held several times throughout the year with many vendors selling a wide variety of guns, knives and other related items.

The Enumclaw Oktobeerfest is held every October and includes the opportunity to try a variety of beers (last year there were 32), eat delicious Bavarian food, play games, talk to brewers, and enjoy live entertainment.

The Enumclaw Festival of Crafts and Gifts is held the weekend before Thanksgiving every year. This event features a variety of hand-crafts crafts and other gifts that is a great way to kick-off your holiday shopping. You can also enjoy holiday entertainment, have photos taken with Santa and the kids can make a holiday craft.
