Iowa State Fairgrounds Event Calendar

Update as of 3.24.2020

Because our utmost priority is the safety and health of the people of Iowa, the Fairgrounds has postponed, when possible, all NON-fairtime events until mid-April. On behalf of our event promoters, participants, and attendees; we know the safety and well-being of our community is our top priority. Please check events below for more specific information.​

For 11 days in August, it’s a fairground, but for the other 354 days of the year, the Iowa State Fairgrounds is home to auto shows, livestock exhibitions, flea markets, antique shows, concerts, trade shows and more. See what’s happening this month at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

The Iowa State Fair is not responsible for the planning or programming of non-Fair events hosted on the Fairgrounds. All non-Fair events are solely the responsibility of the contracted event organizer and said organizer should be contacted for specific event information.
