Nampa's Taste of Idaho is steeped in history as the celebration of the harvest extends back to the early 1900s with Nampa's Harvest Festival. The event began as a street fair organized by a group of church ladies. Local farmers would bring their fruits and vegetables, poultry, etc., to sell in downtown Nampa. Music, games, and other activities were enjoyed by families. In 1913, a bronco bucking contest was added.
In 2015, the Nampa Chamber of Commerce created a committee of dedicated volunteers to bring this tradition back to Nampa. Re-named, "Taste of Idaho", the festival continues to celebrate the local harvest. The menu is carefully planned using locally sourced ingredients provided by partnering organizations throughout the Treasure Valley and Idaho. A beer and wine garden was added to highlight offerings from local wineries and breweries.
Once again, Nampa is proud to celebrate the taste of Idaho and our community.
