About the 50th State Fair:
The 50th State Fair is a popular Honolulu Thing to Do that has been delighting both locals and visitors since it began in 1947. Back then it had a different name: The 49th State Fair. At the time, the powers that be firmly believed that Hawaii would be the 49th state admitted to the Union. When Alaska beat out Hawaii for the 49th spot, the name of this Oahu Event was changed to the 50th State Fair.

Attendees to the Fair will find the usual State Fair offerings such as food, games and rides. The fair is held each weekend during the length of fair, which is typically about one month long.

Courtyard by Marriot Waikiki Beach welcomes the visitors who come to enjoy this and other top Honolulu Things to Do. Our convenient location is near the venue for this Oahu Event, and our Waikiki Hotel is also near some of Honolulu’s best Dining and Shopping venues.

One popular feature of the 50th State Fair is an act called Pound Puppies. This fun show features dogs that were saved from animal shelters and trained to perform amazing tricks. This show is so impressive that it has been included in the Ringling Bros. circus since 2003. The Backyard Circus and Family Puppet Parade is another fun, quirky show that delights visitors of all ages.

To enjoy the rides, visitors purchase coupons at the gate. Each ride costs between 2 and 5 coupons. Special wrist band days allow fair goers to purchase a wrist band which then allows them to ride as many rides as they’d like.

The 50th State Fair is a chance to spend time outdoors while enjoying a variety of food, fun and games. If you’ll be staying at our Waikiki Hotel during this Oahu Event then spend a day or two enjoying all the fair has to offer.
