Iowa State Fair Attempts to Break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® Title for Largest Cornhole Tournament

By definition, it's a lawn game in which players toss beanbags toward a slanted board with the goal of landing the bag through the hole in the center of the board. Whether you call it bags, backyard toss, bagg-o, Chuck-O, bean bags or cornhole, the Iowa State Fair is trying to break a record for the largest cornhole tournament on Saturday, August 20.

The current record stands at just 444 participants set by an organization in San Diego, California in June of 2019. The Iowa State Fair has been close to the record in the past.

In order to break the current record in 2022, the Iowa State Fair will need more than 444 participants. Registration information for teams can be found at Doubles are required to pre-register this year on the Scoreholio App so that an official count can be logged by Guinness World Records. No day of registrations will be accepted. All participants will receive a free commemorative t-shirt.

The bags tournament is sponsored by Floor & DĂ©cor. Find more details at
