Welcome to the Fair
On behalf of the Fair Board, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2021 Idaho County Fair.
Our theme this year is “There’s a Touch of Country in the Idaho County Fair.”
Young adults involved in 4-H and FFA livestock shows and 4-H exhibits work hard all year to showcase their showmanship skills and completed projects. Our open class exhibitors spend the year working on recipes, quilts, art projects, floral arrangements and more in the hopes of winning that Blue Ribbon. Families and friends in the county gather to enjoy food, fun, and friendships.
Please join us at the fair this year!
