Fair Board History

FAIR BOARD HISTORY

In the 1950s, a meeting of businesmen and interested exhibitors was held to appoint a committee of fifteen members to manage the Nez Perce County Fair. The Fair continued with a 21-person committee acting as the Fair Board. In 1953, there was a new move to get a county fair board founded under the Idaho Code. The stack of petitions representing 4,500 county residents was appealing for a permanent County Fair Board. Herbert Powell (third from the right), Chairman of the Lewiston Chamber of Commerce Petition Committee, is presenting them to the Nez Perce County Commissioners in the photo below. (Left to Right) Bert Schroeder, J.D. Richardson, Wayne Talbott, Powell, and Art Barnes and Kermit Malcom of the Chamber of Commerce, who presented the petitions to the Commissioners at the County Courthouse on December 15, 1953.
