The North Idaho State Fair, University of Idaho Kootenai/Shoshone County 4-H and Kootenai County FFA are excited to announce the new North Idaho Youth Stock Show and Sale set to kick off at the 2023 North Idaho State Fair!

Everything you know and love about livestock exhibits and marketing at the North Idaho State Fair will be the same, except adding a new option for independent youth livestock exhibitors to show and sell their animals. We can't wait to tell you more in the coming months. Make sure to keep an eye on social media and the North Idaho State Fair website for the 2023 schedule and full rules.

Would you like to help? We’re seeking adults who are passionate about livestock and positive youth education (with skills that might be beneficial in planning and conducting shows and the annual sale) to consider applying for the North Idaho State Fair Youth Stock Show & Sale Committee. Applications can be found below and are due by November 16th, 2022 at 5 PM.

Thank you for the continued support for our Community!
