From Bonner County Fair Website:The Bonner County Fair provides clean, old-fashion, wholesome entertainment, which in turn provides fun for each member of any family. It affords an opportunity to reminisce about old times and to make new friends. The exhibits promote friendly rivalry among those who participate and make others want to participate.

One of the Fair Board member's main objectives is to help rural youth-those who are involved in Junior Fair Advisory Board, 4-H and other youth organisations. Bonner County Fair provides a place to "showcase" communication skills, exhibit talents, display animals or products to compare them, to compete in the selling of them, and in the process, build character and prepare these same youngsters to become the adult leaders for the future.
The Bonner County Fair is successful due to our support base. Our beautiful facility is due to our supporters. The Fairboard and Fairground's staff appreciates all the assistance, love and loyalty given.
In 2010, we opened a new RV Campround with 33 camp sites with power, asphalt pads and water. Restrooms with showers and a covered pavilion are also available within the campground. Cost for camping during fair is $60 and reservations are highly recommended.
The Bonner County Fair is where Memories are made. A time for reunion and reflection in an atmosphere where past meets present.
We remain to stay true to our mission statement "Promote the agricultural heritage and future of the county by providing opportunity for education and entertainment, while preserving rural traditions".
