The Benewah County Fair starts Thursday!


These grand champion chickens were among the livestock auctioned at the 2011 Fair.

The barns and buildings at the Benewah County fairgrounds will be brimming with exhibits as area residents show their best of everything; produce from their gardens, sewing, baked goods and livestock are just a few of the categories you’ll see.

For more than 60 years area youngsters have sold their grain-fed livestock projects, beef, swine and sheep, at the market auction. Plan to attend the auction this year and stock your freezer, helping out

Back this year is the Saturday’s Pie Judging Contest. Got a favorite pie recipe?

Enter your creation in the pie contest.

And you won’t want to miss the 4-H 100th Birthday Party. Cake and ice cream will be served as will a host of memories from area 4-H Club members, past and present.

We’ve included the schedule of events below.
