12 Unique Festivals In Iowa That Everyone Should Go To At Least Once

We Iowans know how to have fun, and that’s pretty clear considering we have a whole festival dedicated to bacon, and another festival dedicated to the Star Trek series. With all the festivals and county fairs going on, there is never a dull day in an Iowan summer, and these 12 unique festivals will keep you coming back again and again.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
