For more than 120 years, the Eastern Idaho State Fair has been an integral part of the community, bringing people of all ages and backgrounds together to celebrate the region's rich agricultural history.  Last year's Fair saw a record-breaking attendance of nearly 255,000, making it the largest annual event in Eastern Idaho.

This year's fair promises to be FAIRtastic, offering a range of activities and experiences for food, fun, family, and friends in Eastern Idaho.  The theme, "It's FAIRtastic," captures the essence of the Fair's traditions, entertainment, food, and unique experiences found only at the Eastern Idaho State Fair.

We are grateful for the continuous support of the fair staff, board of directors, superintendents, vendors, and volunteers, who work tirelessly to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone.  Over the past 13 years, the Fair has set eight attendance records, raising over $375,000 annually for youth programs in Eastern Idaho and totaling over $4 million in ten years.

EASTERN IDAHO STATE FAIR A REFLECTION OF OUR GREAT COMMUNITY:  The Eastern Idaho State Fair has grown from a stock show in 1902 to a multi-county district fair representing 16 counties in Eastern Idaho.  The Fair's success is attributed to its commitment to providing wholesome, affordable, family-oriented entertainment and educating the public about the benefits of Idaho agriculture.  With a wide variety of competitions, entertainment, and educational activities packed into nine days of FAIRtastic FUN, our food is a main draw for most fairgoers, with many returning each year to enjoy their favorite fair food.

We invite you to join us at the 2023 Easter Idaho State Fair to create lasting memories with your family and friends.  We look forward to seeing you at the Fair!  It's going to be FAIRtastic!
