The Iowa State Fair is one of the largest state fairs in the country and is annually held in Des Moines, Iowa. Traditionally the fair is held for eleven days and is packed with all sorts of fun and entertainment The Iowa State Fair dates back to 1854 when it was held at Fairfield at a very small scale. Over the next few years the tradition to hold the fair became stronger and the fair moved from town to town before it settled in Des Moines. The Iowa State Fair management is proud to see the increasing numbers of attendees at the fair with every passing year.

With multitudes of attractions and events arranged for the audience, the Iowa State Fair management leaves no stone unturned to make sure that the people attending the fair enjoy their time. The Sky Glider is one of the most popular rides at the fair that takes people above ground level and gives them the perfect aerial view of the fair grounds and lets them see the happenings going on beneath them. Zipline is another adrenaline filled ride that gets your blood pumping, as you jump from a 28 foot tower and fly across the fair ground at a distance of 130 feet. The Iowa State Fair’s Giant Slide is the perfect combination of fun and fear, as the people taking advantage of this ride glide downwards at a super high speed and getting thrill of the rush. One of the most popular rides is the Ye Old Mill, an old school ride made just for families and couples. This ride is designed after the tradition "Tunnel of Love" and is the most sedate and relaxed ride of the Iowa State Fair.

Besides rides, the Iowa State Fair offers other attractions like the Butter Cow, which is a permanent presence at the fair every year. As suggested by the name, the cow is actually sculpted by butter and attracts throngs of people every year. The first Butter Cow for the Iowa State Fair was sculpted in 1911 and since them many different sculptors have tried their hand at the famous Butter Cow, each giving his or her unique aspect to the famous attraction.

Food is also a major charm of the Iowa State Fair, with all sorts of concessions and food options available for visitors. People on restrictive diets will not be left out as the management has made sure that a vast variety of eatables are offered at the fair.
