Western Idaho Fair 

Expo Idaho and Grounds, Friday-Sunday, Aug. 17-26

If you've driven down State Street in the last few weeks, you've probably already had a good, long look at the Western Idaho Fair's new marketing campaign. On one billboard, an anthropomorphic pig in a black t-shirt and bright red lipstick invites viewers to "Meet [her] at the fair," and there's a lot more where that came from on the WIF website, which is set up like a tinder profile for barn animals. Odd marketing aside, the fair really is the perfect place to meet a pig, cow or even a "no drama" llama (as advertised). It's also the go-to spot for hair-raising roller coaster rides, local art and produce displays, and more fried food than it's possible to consume in a single night. Stop by during the fair's 10-day run to continue a 120-year Idaho tradition.
