IDAHO FALLS â€” From free entertainment including Lady Houdini and Blackfoot spray can artist Matt Sorensen to concerts from Big and Rich and Credence Clearwater Revisited, the Eastern Idaho State Fair will "Feed Your Need For Fun" this year.

The fair will run from Aug. 30-Sept. 6. Gate prices will remain the same as they have been for the past five years â€” $6 for adults and $2 for children 6-11. Senior admission is $4.
Big and Rich will perform on Sept. 4 with Cowboy Troy and special guest Old Dominion as the warmup acts. Credence Clearwater Revisited will perform on Sept. 5. Ticket packages to both concerts begin at $44.
