A message regarding the upcoming March 28th show:  The safety, security, and health of our attendees, vendors, and staff is always a top priority. We are monitoring and will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely with our venue along with our local government officials in Pierce County.

Currently, there are no plans to alter the date, time or occurrence of the Washington State Toy Show.  No federal, state or local officials have issued any restrictions on attending public events. The Washington State Fair and Events Center has stated that their facility is currently operating normally, and events scheduled at the facility are proceeding as planned.

The Washington State Fair has increased the frequency of their sanitization procedures and increased the amount of hand cleaning stations available to guests and staff.  They will continue to work closely with their community health partners and follow the guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the COVID-19 Virus. 

We will also augment and/or modify our plans as necessary, based on updated situational reports from those teams, if any new facts are made known.

We politely ask all attendees and vendors to use and follow standard cold and flu guidelines. If you are not feeling well, we ask that you do not attend the event.  Attendees and vendors that fail to use good judgment may be asked to put on a facemask to protect others or may be asked to leave the event.

We encourage all of our attendees to take care of their own health and protect their fellow fans by utilizing these valuable sources of information:
