Welcome to Rockford, Washington, population 500. Home of the South East Spokane County Fair, September 19th, 20th, and 21st 2014; the fair that showcases exhibits from the entire Palouse farming region.
Our community's pride in unbounded friendliness keeps the cozy farming community growing, cradled in a fertile crescent of rich farmlands surrounded by low, evergreen forested mountains, 22 miles south of Spokane Valley, WA and 26 miles southwest of Coeur d'Alene, ID.
Visitors enjoy a first-rate driving tour through the block-long business district of historic two-story buildings, enhanced by the idyllic Rockford Park and Fairgrounds that entice travelers to bide a while.
More than a dozen clubs and civic organizations offer Rockford citizens and visitors events such as the annual Lion's Club Frog Race, basketball, horsemanship and summer movies in the park, and the Saturday Farmer's & Flea Market. Teens organize and enjoy dances that welcome all generations.
Summertime culminates with the Southeast Spokane County Fair. Three lovely young ladies are crowned Queen and princesses. Exhibits, entertainment, concessions, rides, vendors, and booths manned by civic groups serving wholesome homemade foods bring young and old together in the fairgrounds and Town Park.
