Iowa State Fair 2017 Preview: What to expect
In a town that is a bit of a hub for the nation’s largest, the Iowa State Fair is an epicenter of American culture, with the state’s largest outdoor display of Americana.
The fair, which takes place in Ames, Iowa from September 15 to October 4, is the biggest annual event of its kind, attracting millions of people annually.
But the fair is also known for being a place for the kind of stuff that doesn’t often get the same amount of attention: food, fashion, theater, theatre performances, arts, music, theater and more.
The Fair is also a hotbed of controversy: last year, the fair’s largest show, the National Book Festival, was cancelled over concerns about safety, and a new version of the festival, the International Arts Festival, drew a wave of criticism.
There’s a reason the Iowa Fair has become such a hit, and we wanted to make sure you knew where to find all of the great things you can’t find in the city.
Let’s take a look at all the things you might miss.
