Officials with the Iowa State Fair, Wednesday (today), report the Fair will not be held this year. A statement on their social media page, read: “This year, we’re heartbroken to say we won’t be able to come together to celebrate the year’s best in agriculture, industry, entertainment and achievement at the Iowa State Fair.

Right now, we’re all doing our part to stay safe. So while our grounds will remain quiet, nothing can shut down the spirit of the Iowa State Fair. Some of those traditions might have to be brought closer to home or we might have to make memories in new ways. And while this isn’t the Fair we were planning to have in 2020, we’ll ride this experience together.

Until next year, keep growing, showing, and doing your Blue Ribbon best. Because one thing we’ve learned is that it only gets better from here. Fairwell for now, and we’ll see you August 12-22, 2021. For more information, please visit our FAQ page at iowastatefair.org/about/fair-updates. “
