Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first sale in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
The Farm Chicks Fair is held the first full weekend of June each year in Spokane, Washington.
Saturday, June 3, 9am-6pm & Sunday, June 4, 9am-4pm
Admission: $8 per day, or $15 Weekend Pass (CASH ONLY). Children 12 & under are admitted free. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 2nd from 3-5pm at the fairgrounds ticket windows and are available for sale again Saturday morning and throughout the duration of the fair. All tickets are general admission.
Parking: Free. Many handicapped spaces are available. Please note: There is unlimited general parking available at the fairgrounds. Parking attendants will direct you to the best available parking spaces.
Crowds: Saturday morning is a very busy time at the fair, and tends to be very crowded until the mid-late afternoon. Parents are cautioned that strollers can be extremely difficult to navigate. Baby packs or baby backpacks are highly advised. If you do not like crowds, we recommend visiting the fair later in the day on Saturday or any time on Sunday, as the fair is much less crowded and much easier to navigate. And the best part? Booths are re-stocked with fresh unseen goods, just for Sunday’s shoppers, as the Curators come to the show with massive trailers packed with their merchandise. Spaces are restocked continually throughout the fair.
Show Location: Spokane County Fair and Expo Center, 404 N. Havana Street, Spokane Valley, Washington. The fair is all indoors.
