Iowa State Fair

Taste of the Fair

September 25th - October 11th, 2020
Iowa State Fairgrounds

The Iowa State Fair announced a fall round (3 weekends) of Fair food on the Grand Concourse. The events held in late July were successful with more than 34,000 people safely ordering up some of their favorite deep-fried on a stick fair foods. For our upcoming Taste of the Fair fall events on September 25-27, October 2-4, and October 9-11, we would like to invite some of our favorite Fair partners to join us by helping us make the famous Barksdale’s Iowa State Fair chocolate chip cookies.
