<< North Pole COVID Requirements to Operate in 2020 >>

We are OPEN.  The North Pole has been converted from a destination venue and attraction into a Professional Photography Studio for 2020.  We have specific guidance for a Photography Studio and Retail establishment and are following those rules exactly, and often with extra space and caution. We will be continuing operations with our reduced capacity, outdoor operations, increased cleaning of contact points, excessive social distancing, and mandatory masks.

If there are any updates or changes, it will be posted here first.

Over the past five years, the North Pole at the Fair has evolved into something that we are very proud to present each year as a magical event for kids and families to enjoy during the Christmas season.   Kids want to play, explore, and live in the Magic of Christmas.  

Each year, we attempt to improve and build upon our previous offering and success.  We continually feel an amazing level of pressure and responsibility to meet and exceed expectations.  This year the North Pole will not be what we would have liked to offer you in 2020. Instead. we are building a North Pole that will satisfy all of the requirements that have been set forth in order to operate.

We have been pouring over all of the ever-changing rules and regulations put forth by the Governor, Department of Labor & Industries, and the Pierce County Health Department in order to put forth some semblance of the North Pole at the Fair in November and December.
