Its Here! Iowa State Fair Preparation

The Iowa State Fair is fast approaching and we have got the tell all for this fair season. From current fair fashion trends, to the how to’s of the fair, we have everything you need to be prepared to take on the Iowa State Fair 2018 in style!

The Big Question

With all the fair foods out there, we want to know whats your favorite?

Your Best attempt at Eating Healthy

We all know that our beach bod is very important during the summer months. Unfortunately, the state fair is famous for dangerously delicious fried foods. Thankfully there are a few good and healthy options to choose from if you look hard enough.

The classic Iowa corn on the cob needs its proper place at the state fair. Moonlighting Concessions has you covered when looking for this healthy fix. Head over to the Livestock Pavilion or east of the Varied Industries building for a Mexican grilled corn on the cob, only 160 calories.

Grilled veggies with chicken or shrimp hit the spot?  Tasty kabobs measure up at only 125 calories and feature both.  Hit up Wok N Roll by the Bill Riley Stage for your kabob and rice combo. The Iowa Sheep Industry Association has a lamb kabob near the sheep barn at the main entrance. If you work up an appetite on your climb to the top of the giant slide, Beattie’s has got your kabob needs covered and a side of watermelon will help wash it down as a refreshing capper.

Now let’s talk about your sweet tooth. A single scoop of ice cream with no toppings is only 135 calories. That’s right less than a ear of corn! If Ice cream is not your scene, give cotton candy a try, as one serving of this sugar and air combination rolls in around 220 calories.

Calorie Count

Popcorn: 31 calories per cup- no butter or salt added

Peanuts: 166 calories per ounce

Candy Apples: 400 calories

Soft Pretzel: 400 calories

Hot Dogs/ Corn Dogs: 460 calories

Nutritional information is always available per request when eating out!
