Live on Wednesday: a sneak preview of the 2016 Fair’s Got Talent live event!

For the past few weeks, we’ve been collecting applications for our Fair’s Got Talent live event. Well, they’re in—and we’ve got a number of talented people looking to make a splash at the Western Idaho Fair in August.

Wednesday mid-morning through the afternoon, we’ll be hosting auditions for Fair fans who want to compete at our live event on Monday, August 22, where the winner will be crowned Fair VIP.

Follow us now on Periscope (@westernidfair), Snapchat (sharemyfair), and Facebook Live so you’ll be ready to take a look at the talented people from our area—and to get a sneak peek of some of the acts you could see live on stage in August!



What does the Fair mean to you? Share Your Fair with us in our all-new, interactive talent show experience: Fair’s Got Talent.

If you have a talent to share with the Fair-going public, register before June 9 for a chance to audition on June 15 at the Fairgrounds. If you’re chosen for an audition, you’ll have ten minutes to set up and give the judges your best shot at a one-minute audition segment. We’ll record it and share it on Facebook. Then it’s up to you to share it far and wide and generate buzz for your act!

Out of all of the auditions, we’ll choose a few finalists to compete live on the Western Idaho Fair mainstage on Monday, August 22 in front of a crowd of enthusiastic fair-goers. The winner at the end of the competition on August 22 will be crowned the 2016 Fair VIP and will receive an all-access pass to the remainder of the Fair for him or herself and three others, including carnival wristbands and gate admission for every day of the Fair, plus $300 in cash and lots of other prizes and perks.

So if you’ve got a talent you want to share with the Fair, register for your June 15 audition slot before midnight on June 9 for a chance to win a Fair experience you’ll never forget. We look forward to watching fans of the Fair share what it means to them in creative and entertaining ways. Good luck!
