There will be some major changes to the Biggest Show in Idaho this year. After a strong 20 year run, Phil Meador is handing the reigns over to the people of Bannock County. He’s still going to be a huge sponsor of the event but he hopes that by including others, the show will become even bigger as a result.

While everything is still in the planning stages, there are some exciting things being talked about for the Biggest Show in Idaho. The goal is to expand the show to make it a multiday event.

The Biggest Show in Idaho already brings a lot of people to Pocatello and they hope this will increase by adding more events. Early ideas include a possible musical festival, a sanctioned bike race or a fun run.

The fairgrounds have been a great host for the Biggest Show in Idaho and there is a good chance they’ll always be part of the event but future plans could bring the events to other parts of the city and county.

I've found that when you split events up into different areas you can lose the "festivity-ness" of the whole thing. Going from place to place makes things disconnected, people get distracted. It is also better for vendors, educational/instructional booths, etc. because they want everyone to be able to see there wares. So if it's split up, who says where they will be placed and where would be the best place for them....

The fairgrounds is the most people friendly and holds the biggest crowds with the most room than anyplace in pocatello. it has easy access and off ramps from and to the freeways. it is close to food and sleeping and shopping . I suggest more bathrooms. there never seems to be enough and they dont seem to have enough people to maintain them. more food booths and treat spots. how about dunking ponds , donating places, some sort of contests? concerts? family entertainment. pocatello is a great place with great neighbors. keep it at the fairgrounds, add more businesses and keep the crowd coming.
