Choose Your Iowa Adventure at the Iowa State Fair

Visit the Choose Iowa booth in the John Deere Agriculture Building! Open August 8-18, 9 am – 9 pm. 

New this year! The booth is an interactive game that gives fair attendees a chance to understand decisions farmers face every day. Additional features of the booth include a TV that will play a video loop featuring footage from our commodity groups and a truck simulator.
