Each year, the Eastern Idaho State Fair Board of Directors selects a Grand Marshal to represent the EISF at the Opening Day Parade. The Grand Marshal is selected for his or her lifetime service to the Eastern Idaho State Fair and/or the community. Nominees must be located in or affiliated with the 16 counties that comprise the EISF: Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, Bonneville, Butte, Caribou, Clark, Custer, Franklin, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, Oneida, Power, and Teton.
Nominations are accepted throughout the year. Nominations forms must be turned in by May 15, 2017 for the nominee to be considered for that year’s fair. The Grand Marshal is announced in July annually. To download an application, click here.
