Staff & Employment Opportunities

The Eastern Idaho State Fair may last only 9 days of the year, but there is an entire year’s worth of work that goes into it. The Board of Directors have a monthly meeting to approve various aspects of the Fair, the next year’s fair is planned, the exhibitor handbook is created, and the entertainment is chosen. There are also various events that occur during the summer, such as a dog show, parties, diesel pulling, and quinceañeras. The Main Office and Grounds need to be staffed year-round to take care of everything. Go to the Contact Page to contact the Eastern Idaho State Fair.
