About Festivals in Iowa

The agricultural state of Iowa is renowned for its farmers, farmland and muddy-kneed jovial spirit. It’s a place of hidden treasures, beaming smiles and rural heartlands. It’s also a great location to attend a festival, with exciting events dedicated to things as broad and bizarre as boats, bands, arts, tulips, jazz, hot air balloons and more.

The annual Glenn Miller Festival celebrates the iconic and timeless music of Clarinda’s very own Glenn Miller. Each year, hundreds of fans come together for a festival of performances, shows, picnics, displays, dances and more, all centred around the legendary tunesmith. The orchestral arrangements will knock your socks off and show you what makes Glenn Miller so special!

Burlington Steamboat Days showcases a wider and more diverse range of music for those looking for something more varied, with pop, rock, hip hop, R&B, golden oldies and big swinging bands. Previous attendees have included hugely famous and prestigious acts such as Louis Armstrong, ZZ Top, Alice Cooper and many more iconic names. The event also features sideshows, rides, food and loads more fun.

Iowa State fair has been running for over 150 years, and continues to astound and entertain in what many consider to be the best state fair in the entire USA. For eleven days in August, Iowa becomes a living fairground of exciting events and attractions with over a million attendees. This traditional-style event features many old-fashioned and classic offerings, with a great array of concerts, celebrities, bands, livestock shows, fireworks, sideshows, amusements, rides, carnival shows, food, BBQs and more. If there’s one place to revel in the traditional fairground-fun spirit of the good old days, it has to be the farm state of Iowa.

The unique Des Moines Art Festival is a diverse and cultured event which showcases a broad and inspirational range of forms, styles and genres to all comers. The festival promises to promote high-quality art and encourages people from all walks of life to engage, with many opportunities to get involved. Each year, the offerings include performances, interactive arts, performing arts, workshops, classes, paintings, music, films, dance, family zones and loads more. It’s all about inclusion, equality and having a great time. There’s a discipline and style that everyone will love!
