The Spokesman-Review At the Fair

The Spokesman-Review will have their own stage at the 2018 Spokane County Interstate Fair, and we would love for you to join us. Our newsroom has now spent way more than “A Year in the Fields” as we’ve told the stories of the Washington farmer, and we want to talk with even more folks involved with our state’s agriculture scene.
