- Evergreen State Fair. In late August and early September, the fair in Monroe revs into action with animals on display, midway rides and the rodeo.
- Salmon-watching at Ballard Locks. From July to October (best viewing in August and September), the fish ladder at the locks offers a spectacular view into the life cycle of our iconic fish.
