Traffic and parking can be a challenge when coming to the Fair during busy hours and especially on the weekends. Parking this year will cost $10 per vehicle and $15 for over-sized vehicles.
That is why we strongly urge you to ride TriMet's MAX to the Washington County Fair! The Fair Complex Station is located adjacent to the Fair Complex, and during the annual Washington County Fair, catch a Shuttle Bus running regularly to and from the Fair main entrance gate from the MAX station! The shuttle rides are FREE and the shuttles start running each day at 9:15 AM and run every 20 minutes. The last shuttle will leave the Fair Main Gate each night at 11 PM. At least 1 of the 3 shuttles will have a wheelchair lift. Thank you to our Parking Lot and Shuttle Sponsor, Les Schwab Tire Centers.
We also recommend carpooling or using a Ride Share service, like Uber or Lyft. We have designated our West Parking lot on 28th Avenue, as the Ride Share drop-off and pick-up BEST OPTION. This smaller paved lot is for ADA Parking Only, AND THEN ALSO FOR DROP-OFFS AND PICK-UPS FOR RIDE SHARE SERVICES . The paved driveway for that lot is located on 28th Avenue across from MotoSport Hillsboro which is located at 809 NE 28th Avenue, Hillsboro, OR 97124. There's a very good reason why we're drawing your attention to the location of MotoSport Hillsboro: Our property is big and is surrounded by roads on all sides BUT it has just one address--873 NE 34th Avenue, and if you use our address as the destination point, you will be taken to the most heavily congested roadways and parking lots. If the driver can get to our West lot across from MotoSport Hillsboro, it should be a little easier for them. Please be aware, there will be a 10 minute time limit for that lot for pick-ups. You will enter the Fair via the Cloverleaf Gate on the West Side, and leave via that same gate as well.
The Fair Complex is located at 873 NE 34th Ave, Hillsboro, OR 97124
