Wholesome education and entertainment opportunities are endless at the Eastern Idaho State Fair. The low-priced entry into the fair gives you access to over 200 commercial exhibitors, 70 concessionaires, free entertainment, home arts and livestock exhibits, and more!
The EISF is proud to have the best fair food in the Intermountain West! In celebration of the delicious array of fair food, the 2013 EISF is a Feeding Frenzy filled with a buffet food giveaways, contests, and fun.
Feed your need for fun with all of the great FREE entertainment on the Free Stages and in the West Events Area. 2013 acts include Hypnotist Richard Barker, Magician Jeff Martin, Comedian Paul Isaak, Aces Up, and the Redhead Express. The West Events area is filled with interactive educational exhibits, the interactive petting zoo Meet the Animals, and new to 2013--Wild About Monkeys!
Agricultural heritage, of course, is the base of the Fair. Exhibitors from all over travel to the Fair to show their horses, goats, cattle, swine, sheep, and poultry to compete for cash prizes. After preparing all year, 4-H and FFA students come to show their animals and crafts to compete for prizes. Prizes are also given in competitions such as needlecraft, photography, cooking, sugar art, antiques, and flowers.
Our large grandstand arena featured in the center of the fairgrounds is packed with entertainment day and night. During the day, visitors can watch horse hitches, team penning, barrel racing, horse pulling, and a junior rodeo. The most attended day event is the Pari-mutuel Races paired with the always exhilarating Indian Relay Races. Each night for an extra fee, visitors watch the Bull Riding Competition, Rodeos, the Tractor Pull, FreestyleMX, popular rock and country Concerts, and the yearly sell-out Demolition Derby. We are serving up a heaping dish of country this year with stars Chris Young w/ Morgan Frazier on Sept. 5 and Trace Adkins w/Due West on Sept. 6!
