The oldest fair in Washington, the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days Rodeo, and Demolition Derby will celebrate 157 years. That’s right, the fair in Walla Walla has existed since 1866!

The Demolition Derby, on the other hand, isn’t quite that old, but is extremely popular and almost always sells out when tickets go on sale. So, be ready to purchase your tickets starting at 9:00 am on Friday, March 31, 2023, through the Walla Walla Fair website.
