Ed Brown Band Stand and Dance Area

History of the band stand and dance area

In 2002, Ed Brown shared his vision of building a Band Shell to expand cultural, educational, and entertainment opportunities in our region. Ed worked on this project until his death in 2004. He envisioned a facility for groups and organizations to utilize and share their talents with surrounding communities. In 2005, the Bonner County Fair Board constructed a Band Stand to honor Ed's work and inspire the community to come together and become involved. Each year since, Ed's family members have made improvements and donated funds to keep the Band Stand a wonderful place for our community to gather.

Ed's dream to provide an enjoyable area to perform or listen to music, plays, or dance troops continues to bring entertainment. His dream lives on!

Memorial Water Garden

The Memorial Water Garden was dedicated to members of the community who may have had involvement with the fairgrounds, whether Fair, Rodeo or both. Some of their families and friends are still involved to this day.
It is also an area where the public can relax and reflect, listen to water trickle down into the pond, see lush greenery, and depending on the time of year smell the lilacs. You'll also enjoy vibrant colors of a variety of flowers and soak up the warmth of the summer sun rays.
Please note the pond closes during the winter months.


EMS services are available during Fair time

We are proud to have the Bonner County Emergency Management Services on the fairgrounds during fair.
