As one of the largest state fairs in the country, you can’t miss this year’s Iowa State Fair. Held in Des Moines and lasting 11 days, this event brings Iowans together from all across the state. Hop in your car and see what makes this event so unique.
According to the official website, the state fair will be held from August 11 to the 21. Among the top entertainment acts are several famous musicians, including Lady Antebellum, Meghan Trainor, Jason Derulo, Steven Tyler, and more. Jeff Dunham will appear on August 18, while a Grand Outlaw National Tractor and Truck Pull will be held on August 17.
There will also be some unforgettable fair food, including new foods like Ice Cream Nachos, Not Your Mama’s Taco, the Pride of Iowa Wrap, and more. Food contest participants will also make an appearance, and, naturally, you can find all the classics like burgers and fries all over the fair. If you loved classic fried food, you won’t want to miss the Iowa State Fair.

There is a massive double Ferris wheel, Kiddieland with over 20 attractions, and challenging games of skill. There will also be free entertainment and a live stage available, making it easy to simply go to the fair and relax.
