Bonner County Fair Mission Statement

"Promote agricultural heritage and the future of the county."
Located in the panhandle of scenic North Idaho on the northern shores of Lake Pend Oreille and the foot of the Selkirk Mountains. There is always something happening at the fairgrounds. Rodeos, motor sports, horse shows, indoor soccer, volleyball, trade shows, fundraisers, reunions, weddings and of course the annual Bonner County Fair.

The fairgrounds are located less than two miles north of downtown Sandpoint and one mile east of Ponderay, the fairgrounds are within minutes from lodging, food, shopping, and Highway 95.

The Economical and Social Impacts

The Bonner County Fairgrounds are able to support and offer our community a place to gather, celebrate heritage and reward one another for accomplishments through competition and public recognition through the fair and rodeo and or other events.
Our fairgrounds can also provide community groups with fundraising opportunities and we are also able to accommodate larger main events like Home & Garden Show, Gun & Horn Show, Funky Junk Antique Show, Christmas Craft Fair, plus many more! These types of events and the like supports our local economy and has a lasting impact on families and businesses that keeps Bonner County thriving and prospering.


Fair policies and procedures are set by a volunteer fair board that meets traditionally the second Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m., as required by Idaho Code. The fair board is a governing board under the direction of the Bonner County Commissioners. Policies are then administered by the fair manager.
Funding of the Bonner County Fair is partly funded from property tax funds proportioned by the Bonner County Treasurer and also fairground venue rental, sponsorships and the like.
