The Western Idaho Fair is the top destination for children, and a great place to learn all about agriculture, farming, and ranching. With so much to explore, we have developed a program to provide fun to your children while learning about exhibits and exhibitors throughout their Fair experience: the Passport to the Fair program.
With a Passport to the Fair, your child can participate in a Fair-based scavenger hunt, full of Fair fun. While running around to gather their clues, they’ll get a chance to see the Small Animal Building and its adorable residents, meet 4-H participants and their livestock, learn about a variety of hobbies and skills that may interest them, meet plenty of Idaho farm families, and find out about the agricultural way of life that is alive and well in the state of Idaho.
So check out the Passport to the Fair program for a fun way to experience all that the fair has to offer with your children! It begins in the 4-H department inside the South Expo building throughout the duration of Western Idaho Fair, August 21 – 30.
This year, Western Idaho Fair with the help of Boise Urban Gardens (BUGS) and Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation planed our first Urban Garden. From melons to peppers and tomatoes to eggplants, we are growing a variety of fresh vegetables at the fair. Living an urban lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to give up fresh, healthy food. If you’re looking to grow some of your own food, from herbs to produce, here are a few questions to ask before getting started.
From August 21-30, stop by the Western Idaho Fair presented by Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation and Boise Urban Gardens. You learn about how you can get started, compatible plant types, and other fun resources. The Urban Garden is located near the Project Filter Garden Stage.
Each year, the Western Idaho Fair has an assortment of demonstrations throughout the fair, and a variety of opportunities that let you interact with animals from farms all across the area. Besides being cute, these animals can teach us a lot about where our food comes from.
One of the chores Idaho farmers must endure? Chicken baths. Chickens are one of the only animals that don’t bathe themselves in water, preferring dust baths instead. But for a variety of reasons we won’t get into because it’s gross, they need regular cleaning. So how do you give a chicken a bath?
And there you have it: chicken bathing. For more fun animal lessons, and to watch Jerry give a chicken a bath, check out the Small Animal Building at the Western Idaho Fair August 21-30!
