This year, it’s all about “Fair Necessities.”
The North Idaho State Fair, from Aug. 21-25, will once again bring all the fair essentials – food, rides and entertainment – to the Kootenai County Fairgrounds.
Attendees can check out the Gem State Stampede PRCA Rodeo, Uncle Curly’s Funtastic Kids Zone, the Bugology Show, train rides, stilt walkers, a demolition derby, the Top Cop High Dive Show and much more.
The carnival, open 2 p.m. to close Aug. 21 and Aug. 22 and noon to close Aug. 23-25, features rides for families and children, as well as classics like the Giant Wheel, swings and bumper cars.
Carnival wristbands are valid for one guest on one day and are good on all rides.
Country singers Craig Morgan and Jerrod Niemann will headline the opening-day “Party in the Dirt” concert, and Music on the Midway, the fair’s free concert series, features performances from Lake Town Sound (Wednesday, 7 p.m.), Jeremy McComb (7:30 p.m. Thursday), Jacob Maxwell, Andrew Jannakos and Carter Lloyd Horne, all from “The Voice” (Aug. 23, 7:30 p.m.), Last Chance Band (Aug. 24, 7 p.m.) and Sean Owsley and the Blue Mustangs (Aug. 25, 4 p.m.)
As always, there also will be many vendors and food options available.
