Western Idaho Fair 2013
he Western Idaho Fair, dba Expo Idaho, is a totally self-supporting entity of Ada County, ID. No taxpayer dollars are used for any grounds improvements, capital outlays, maintenance, supplies or salaries. Western Idaho Fair's history dates back to 1897 when it got started as the Intermountain Fair. Although the foundation is the same for the Fair today as what was started all those years ago, many events have changed over time. The Intermountain Fair sprung out of a need for the community to connect Boise and other larger cities that were 300 miles apart. With Boise's strong agricultural roots, the first Fair featured three major departments: livestock (sheep, cattle, horses and hogs), products of the soil and a domestic manufacturing/home department. These bigger categories were subdivided in later years into smaller departments that can still be found today.
