The Iowa State Fair will be featured on the July 4 episode of The View as the show features food from the country’s top fairs. Tune in Monday at 10 a.m. on ABC-affiliated networks to see the segment.

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. As the inspiration for the original novel "State Fair" by Iowan Phil Stong, three motion pictures and Rodgers and Hammerstein's Broadway musical, it is without a doubt the country's most famous state fair. National media frequently rank the Fair as one of the top events in the country. In 2004, USA Weekend named the event the #2 choice for summer fun in America. Midwest Living magazine named the Fair one of the "Top 30 Things Every Midwesterner Should Experience." The Fair is also included in the New York Times best-selling travel book "1000 Places to See Before You Die" and the subsequent travel book, "1,000 Places to See in the U.S.A. and Canada Before you Die."
