Now is the chance to submit your award-winning entry to the 2019 Eastern Idaho State Fair. The entry dates for Home Arts Departments vary from August 23 – 29. All livestock entries are due August 16.

The exhibit opportunities are endless at the Eastern Idaho State Fair with various livestock and home arts departments and categories for people of all ages. Premiums are awarded in each department and the exhibits are seen by everyone who attends the Fair. Those who have never submitted an entry into the Fair may be interested to know that over $150,000 in prize money is given out each year to our exhibitors. That’s a lot of moo-la!

The 2019 Fair is the perfect time to submit your first – or fiftieth – Fair entry. A hand-sewn quilt or secret family recipe that was once thought of as just a fun project can be put on display for all to see. Have your child work on an art project to enter in the Fair as a way to ward off summer boredom before school starts.

To find out how to enter exhibits, go online to, and click on the magenta “Exhibitors and Competitors” button. In addition to fill-able entry forms, the most accurate and current rules can be easily downloaded with a few quick clicks!

First time entering exhibits? Don’t be intimidated or overwhelmed by the entry forms and rules. If you have an item you’d like to enter, but you are not sure which category it goes in, call the department superintendent and they will happily assist you! OR simply bring your item on the correlating entry date and the department employees will help you with your entry. Taste The Fun! at the 2019 Fair Aug. 30 - Sept. 7!
