The Western Idaho Fair is BACK this summer and we officially know who is going to be rocking the main stage once the entertainment gets going.

The Western Idaho Fair will be taking place at its usual home-- the Fairground--starting on August 19th of this summer and running through August 28th.

When we look back over the years, the Western Idaho Fair really has had some of the greatest acts to ever preform in Boise on their mainstage! 

A Look Back at 22 Years of Western Idaho Fair Concerts

The Western Idaho Fair isn't just a destination for fair food and rides! They also have some sweet concerts year in and year out!

So who will be taking the stage this year? 

On Tuesday, August 23rd, Ja Rule & Ashanti will be taking the main stage in what is perhaps one of the most anticipated throwback performances to come to Boise in years!  With major hits like "What's Luv?", "Always On Time", and "Mesmerize", we know that the Treasure Valley is going to be JAMMING to this show.

Other shows include:

  • Chris Janson: ACM award winning country artist will perform on Monday, August 22
  • Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo will perform on Wednesday, August 24th
  • Stone Temple Pilots will perform on Thursday, August 25th
