2021 Idaho Spud Day
More often than not, people of small towns have a knack for finding the exceptional in the mundane. They also understand what binds the citizens together. And even in today’s complex, interconnected world, those binds hold strong. You’ll find no better example of such authentic Americana than just a few miles south of Idaho Falls, where locals and visitors alike flock to the community of Shelley. They gather on the third Saturday of every September to recognize our state’s pride and joy – The venerable potato. The 93-year-old tradition is known far and wide as Idaho Spud Day.
