The 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. In 2019, the Joe Barksdale family gifted his famous warm chocolate chip cookie business to the people of Iowa through the Iowa State Fair. In 2020, the new Barksdale’s State Fair Cookie Building was built to continue Joe’s legacy. Today, the building bakes thousands of chocolate chip cookies for special events and the 11-day Iowa State Fair, August 8-18, 2024.
