LATAH FAIRGROUNDS RECEIVES $100,000 AGWEST FARM CREDIT GRANT

Funds to be used for Fairgrounds and Livestock Facility Improvements

The Latah County Fairgrounds has been awarded $100,000.00 for fairgrounds enhancements as part of AgWest Farm Credit’s Local Advisory Committee (LAC) Guided Stewardship Funds program.

These funds will be used for:

  • Installation of a cement floor in the Rabbit/Poultry/Goat Barn
  • New fencing and arena in the Show/Sale Barn for the swine show, livestock auction, and Small Animal Round Robin
  • New alleyways to connect the Show/Sale Barn and the Swine Barn
  • New fences for the large livestock show arena and holding area
  • New “traffic patterns” for moving animals between barns and arenas
  • New market turkey pens

The new panel and gate systems will all be uniform, interchangeable, and portable so they will greatly expand the ability of the Fairgrounds to host more livestock based events and provide a better and easier experience for the 4-H and FFA youth during Fair, and other patrons of the Fairgrounds during the year.

These funds are part of a large donation granted to 40 organizations across the AgWest territory. As a cooperative, AgWest’s purpose is to champion agriculture by serving as the most trusted resource, helping their customers, employees and communities thrive. In pursuit of this purpose, stewardship investments are made in a variety of ways to support rural communities. This investment of resources is guided by LAC members, who serve as a liaison between AgWest and their customers and communities.


The new materials are scheduled to be in place for the 2023 Latah County Fair “Plaid & Pearls on the Palouse”, September 14-17, 2023.

The Latah County Fair Board is committed to producing a successful Fair, encouraging appropriate use of facilities, and exploring ways in which the Fairgrounds can serve educational and entertainment needs of our community.

The Latah County Fair presents an opportunity for both young and old to exhibit their special skills and hard work and the Fair is a celebration of the special qualities of life in Latah County. The Fair Board, Fair Staff, County Commissioners and many volunteers welcome you and encourage you to enjoy all aspects of the Fair.

The Latah County Events Center is the go-to destination for all event space needs including private events, weekly meetings, public shows, entertainment, fundraising activities, educational opportunities and more. From groups of 20 to 400, the Events Center is committed to providing a quality space for the citizens of the Palouse to gather and enjoy their communities.

The Latah County Fairgrounds and Events Center is a busy place, often with multiple events taking place each day in the Events Center spaces, outdoor activities in green spaces, patrons in the RV Park, and community members enjoying the grounds. We ask all visitors to be good users of our shared resources by keeping dogs on leash, park only in approved areas, and be mindful of other events taking place. We ask that guests do not metal-detect on the main lawn or ball field, do not interfere with any water or irrigation systems, and please use available trash receptacles responsibly. We do not have any horse/equine facilities at the Fairgrounds, please do not bring horses to the Fairgrounds as it is un-fenced property.
