Western Idaho Fair 

Friday, Aug. 19-Sunday, Aug. 28 at Expo Idaho

While fairs tend to be characterized as good places to gain a lot of weight and see bands that have done the same, the Western Idaho Fair has plenty more going for it than that.

Events include Wild West shows, skillet-tossing competitions, aquatic animal shows with stingrays and sea lions, and food contests for everything from barbecuing to milking goats. You can make scarecrows, golf with onions and do your yarndest to knit in 60 seconds or less.

But, for those who also like the aging acts of yesteryear, there are performances by Kool and the Gang on Wednesday, Aug. 24, Craig Morgan on Thursday, Aug. 25, and Cheap Trick on Friday, Aug. 26.
