The Celebrate!Spanaway annual community fair has proven to help build
a sense of community and improve the social, cultural, economic
and aesthetic quality of life for its residents



  • Local entrepreneurs have found they draw customers all year round from exposure at the fair.
  • Local restaurants enjoy increased sales fair weekend from out-of-area vendors and visitors.
  • Fair visitors have told us the fair helped them make new friends and rekindle old acquaintances
  • Rebuilding a small-town know-your-neighbors ambiance through the fair has dramatically cut crime in the area.
  • The fair's ethnic foods and entertainment broaden cultural awareness and acceptance.
  • Fair visitors enjoy music and entertainment they otherwise may not have access to.
  • Non-profit service agencies use the fair as outreach to our citizens in need.
  • The fair provides free wholesome family entertainment in an easily accessible venue for Spanaway's low-income and physically challenged population.


Data from the 2000 U.S. Census illustrates why we seek sponsors so the fair can be free to all.


  • Twenty percent (20%) of Spanaway's non-institutionalized population has some form of disability, three percent (3%) higher than Pierce County overall and four percent (4%) higher than Washington State overall.

  • Spanaway has 2 percent (2%) more families with annual income under $25,000 than do Pierce County overall and Washington State.

  • Despite a lower average income for Spanaway families:
  • Over sixty percent (61.4%) of Spanaway households have all adults residing in the home in the workforce (compared to 43% in Pierce County and 37.8% in the state)
  • So a disproportionate share of the working poor reside in Spanaway.

  • Thirty percent (30%) of Spanaway households include children under age eighteen, compared to 27 percent in Pierce County overall and 25.7 percent in Washington State.

  • The number of Spanaway families on public assistance is higher than the County and State overall.

  • This means that Spanaway has a disproportionate number of children living in poverty or near poverty.

  • Lower adult education among Spanaway residents likely contributes to higher poverty rates despite working adults in the home: 51.6 percent (51.6%) with high school or less (compared to 43.0% in Pierce County and 37.8% in Washington state)
