Available for download now for Android and iPhone
The Western Idaho Fair announced today the launch of the Western Idaho Fair app, the first in the Fair history. Fair visitors can now use their smartphones to purchase tickets, plan their visit, and navigate the fairgrounds.
The app offers users and Fair visitors a full schedule of events over the 10-day Fair period, a detailed interactive map of the grounds, powerful search capabilities, and a favorites feature to allow each user to generate a customized Fair calendar.
“This app is an exciting step forward towards allowing each visitor to make the most out of their Fair experience,” explains Bob Batista, Director of the Western Idaho Fair. “It’s an easy-to-use interface for planning your trip—so you won’t miss anything you really wanted to see, eat, or do.”
In addition to the schedule and map, the app provides a full list of food and beverage vendors and allows users to find their favorite foods with one tap. It also offers an information section that includes services at the Fair and provides for an easy way to contact the main Fair offices.
The app is available for download through the App store for iPhone users and through the Google Play store for Android. Those planning to attend the Fair can purchase discounted advance tickets now through August 17 at Albertsons locations throughout Idaho, through the app, and online at idahofair.com. Tickets will be available at the Fair ticket windows at Expo Idaho at the beginning of the Fair on August 18.
