The internationally-acclaimed Iowa State Fair is the single largest event in the state of Iowa and one of the oldest and largest agricultural and industrial expositions in the country.
Annually attracting more than a million people from all over the world, the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines is Iowa's great celebration, a salute to the state's best in agriculture, industry, entertainment and achievement. From the livestock judging to the games on the Midway, from the Grandstand concerts to the famous "foods on a stick," there's something for everyone. It is the true heartbeat of the Midwest, unequaled and unduplicated.
