May is Idaho Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month and the fair, sponsored by the Idaho Archaeology Society and Idaho State Historical Society, is the perfect time and place to celebrate the occasion.

The family-friendly event isn't just for Treasure Valley folks. It's open to all Idahoans and includes activities for both young and old, including hands-on activities, and you'll learn some things about Gem State history that you previously might not had known.
