Fair Queen


Fair Queen Competition

The annual Iowa State Fair Queen competition is held during the Iowa State Fair as county queens from all over the state of Iowa come together to vie for the coveted crown. Judging is based on personality, attitude, leadership, citizenship, contribution to community, overall appearance, charm and poise.

Was there a 2020 Iowa State Fair Queen contest? The Iowa State Fair Queen contest brings together county fair queens showcasing the very best in personality, leadership, citizenship, charm, poise and contributions to our local communities. We were sad we couldn't hold this prestigious competition in 2020, but we have confidence that our reigning Queen, Hannah Koellner, from Mahaska County, will represent us well until the 2021 competition is held on August 14, 2021.
