2020: No Fair, But Still Serving Up Fun!

The 2020 Iowa State Fair may be postponed, but the Iowa Food & Family Project is still serving up 11 days of fun for friends and families.

For the past decade, the Iowa Food & Family Project (Iowa FFP) has enjoyed meeting and greeting fairgoers in the Southeast Atrium of the Varied Industries Building. From displays featuring Canstruction to farm scenes created from LEGOs®, sand, balloons, photo booths and canvases, August has been a special time to engage with fairgoers.

With the 2020 Iowa State Fair postponed, Iowa FFP is still serving up fun in an engaging way for our friends and families. Throughout the typical 11-day run of the Fair, we will be sharing moments from the past decade with nostalgia-on-a-stick and ways to whet your fair appetite!

Across our social media channels, you will find opportunities to win fantastic prizes, favorite fair memories, food and farm trivia, and tasty fair recipes you can make from home. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to join in the virtual activities.

Be sure to tune into the Virtual State Fair for a daily dose of free online programs and activities organized by the Iowa State Fair.

On Monday, Aug. 17, Iowa FFP is hosting a “Fair Fare Recipe Share” as a sponsor of the Virtual State Fair. You won’t want to miss this entertaining fair recipe cooking demonstration with farmer, food blogger and fair aficionado, Cristen Clark.

“Nothing Compares” to the sights, sounds and experiences of Iowa State Fair fun, but blue-ribbon worthy entertainment is still in the daily lineup!
