Idaho Rodeos and Fairs – Rustle up some fun!

Grab your cowboy hat and boots, and head to Idaho for some exciting rodeo action and the best fairs this side of the Mississippi.  Crowd favorites, like wild cow milking and mutton bustin’, offer an entertaining twist on traditional rodeo events, and culinary treats like funnel cakes, caramel apples and corn dogs are a staple. Whether you are looking for ‘small town’ or ‘big time’, there are plenty of summer rodeos and fairs to entertain the whole family.
