Editor’s note: This brief was updated to reflect the event will now take place indoors due to expected inclement weather.

Nearly 100 businesses and organizations will gather this weekend at the 2022 Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair to help Idahoans understand small steps to take at home, work, school, or with transportation options to improve the environment.

The fair, which is free and open to all ages, will be held from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 135 S. Seventh Ave. in Pocatello. The event was originally planned for Caldwell Park but is being moved indoors to avoid inclement weather conditions.

The event will feature live music, kid-friendly activities, educational presentations, a recycled art contest, upcycled fashion show, information booths and environmentally friendly products for sale. Attendees will also receive a free Idaho baked potato, hot dog or freeze-dried ice cream.

Gates to the festival open at 11 a.m., and the live music and free food will be available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
