State fair manager honored by regional peers

Eastern Idaho State Fair General Manager Brandon Bird has been named recipient of the Kermit Fleming Fair Manager of the Year.

The award was presented during the 93rd annual convention of the Rocky Mountain Association of Fairs (RMAF). It is awarded to an outstanding fair manager from throughout the 11 states and provinces of the Rocky Mountain Region.

“We are fortunate to have Brandon leading the day to day activities of the fair. He works well with people and takes pride in improving the fair experience,” said Eastern Idaho State Fair Board Chairman George Hamilton.

Bird has helped the Eastern Idaho State Fair break attendance records in 5 of the 9 years he has managed the Blackfoot fair. He has also developed a long-term plan to expand and improve the fairgrounds.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the best regional fair association in the country,” says Bird.

Bird served as President of the RMAF in 2016.
