    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. Since opening, the building has hosted small Taste of the Fair events, a very successful National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day and was open during the 2021 Iowa State Fair. Look for special cookie events throughout the year until the 2022 Iowa State Fair, August 11-21.
