Firemen’s Fair

KVFD’s color guard led the parade Aug. 12 during the 2011 Fair Parade.

Aug. 22-24, 2013

The Kent Firemen’s Fair is an opportunity to enjoy small-town fun – games, food and carnival rides – are all designed to provide residents and visitors with an enjoyable three-day event. This year’s Fair will feature free admission.

The Kent Volunteer Fire Department offers its annual fair for a number of reasons. The event is a fundraiser, but it is also a community event and is designed for families.

The Kent Volunteer Fire Department has decided to move back to its traditional date in August (the weekend before Labor Day), so the dates will be Thursday, Aug. 22 through Saturday, Aug. 24. Fairgrounds open at 6 p.m. each night.

Here are a few highlights for the 2013 Fair.  Pay one price ride bracelets all three nights. $20 per night per person.  Thursday night will feature a frog jumping contest beginning at 6:30.  Our firefighter’s parade will be held Friday evening, with step-off at 6:30.

 The White Elephant tent is back! Donations sought for drop off. No large furniture,mattresses,  or junk accepted.

The popular Cake Booth will return to this year’s fair and the volunteers rely on community bakers to help fill the booth. Numbers will be drawn for the winners of cakes and other confectionery items. For information, Email

Many of the familiar favorites will be back with a great selection of carnival rides, children’s games, music and the ever-popular Cake Booth and bingo returns to the fairgrounds each evening with cash prizes. The Firemen’s Parade will feature dozens of visiting firefighters and their trucks on Friday evening.
