North Idaho Fair & Rodeo kicks off August 20!
By Jillian Chandler
Get ready for one of Kootenai County’s highlights of the season! The North Idaho Fair & Rodeo returns to the Kootenai County Fairgrounds August 20 through 29. Offering 10 days of excitement and entertainment around every corner, whether you attend one day or all 10, family and friends of all ages will enjoy it all—from the carnival rides and games, to live entertainment and, of course, the fair food!
From Brad's World Reptile Show and Magician Adam the Great to The Pirate's Parrot Show and Terrance B Hypnotist, the kids are sure to be amazed. And then there’s Los Moralitos Circus, which features fourth-generation performers showcasing professional tumbling, acrobats, unicycles and aerialists—and don’t forget the clown!
For those thrill-seekers, you can’t forget the carnival rides. From the slow and steady kiddie rides to those that are sure to have your heart skipping a beat, and your breath taken away, there’s a ride with your name on it.
Farm Park invites fair-goers for hands-on activities and daily demonstrations. Inspired by the fair's growing Farm to Table program, which provides local fifth graders the opportunity for interactive experience focused on agricultural components, they're excited to share their knowledge.
Live music, demo derbies, monster trucks, rodeo and more round out this year's fair.
Admission to the fair is $8 for adults and $6 for youth. For $25, receive a wristband, which is good for all rides for one day only. For those who plan to spend several days at the fair, you may want to opt for the Carnival Golden Ticket, which allows the ticket holder a ride pass good for all 10 days (does not include fair admission and must be purchased in advance).
