Iowa State Fair hosts virtual state fair Aug. 13-23

Even though Iowans can’t be together for the Iowa State Fair this year, they can safely join together for some of their state 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 the state fair’s 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.
