We’re so close to one of the best events of the summer in the Treasure Valley! The countdown is on to the Western Idaho Fair and there will be no shortage of incredible food to try. 

When it comes to eating your way through the Western Idaho Fair, it’s tough to squeeze in all of your favorites in just one afternoon! Luckily, you’ll have plenty of time to go back for seconds. The fair happens at Expo Idaho for 10 days, starting on Friday, August 18 and wrapping up on Sunday, August 27.

We can’t think of a more fun way to unwind after the first week of school than by checking out the fair, so we put together a little preview of what you can chow down on this year. Just a heads up, these are the vendors focusing on Americana Finger Foods, Worldwide Flavors, Burgers & BBQ. It looks like two new vendors, TOTS! and NY Italian Sausage, are joining some of your old favorites on the midway this year!
