Iowa State Fair Hosts Virtual State Fair, August 13-23
Thursday, August 6, 2020 Des Moines, IA
Even though we can't be together for the Iowa State Fair this year, we can safely join together for some of our Fair favorites virtually. For the 11 days that would have been the Iowa State Fair, August 13-23, you will find fair videos, competitions, facts, memories, classes, history, trivia and games on our website and Facebook page.
Each day will feature a Day of Sponsor, a theme, and 3-4 different activities, videos, or contests. Throughout the week, you can participate in a hymn sing along, learn how to give a chicken a bath, recognize our past Veterans Day participants, make Fair food, sculpt a butter cow, and build your own rollercoaster at home.
Under the current conditions, we are willing to have fun at a distance this year so that we can be together at the 2021 Iowa State Fair.
Follow us on social media or visit www.iowastatefair.org for the full virtual Fair schedule.
