Iowa State Fair

About the Iowa State Fair

The 2018 Iowa State Fair will be held August 9 to 19. Throughout the event, fairgoers are invited to visit the Iowa Food & Family Project team in the atrium of the Varied Industries Building. We’ll have opportunities to win giveaways, meet farmers and learn how Iowa agriculture impacts you.

Be sure to plan your trip to the fair around our Top 9 Iowa State Fair Food Favorites, each featuring Iowa-grown ingredients.
