Largest Pumpkin Contest

This year’s fair theme of “Expect the Unexpected” became more than anyone could have imagined with the presence of COVID-19. A portion of the Spokane County Interstate Fair’s mission statement states that we will “Serve as a showcase of the talents of our community by providing a means of education, exhibit, and competition”. We look forward to a return of our traditional fair in 2021, however, we invite you to participate in our “virtual fair” this year. Thank you for your continued support of the Interstate Fair!
