Coming soon to a fair near you…

July is always a super fun (and chaotic!) time of year as our Iowa Learning Farms/Water Rocks! team crisscrosses the state, traveling to as many county fairs as we can.

While we’d love to visit every county fair in Iowa, that’s a bit of a challenge with the vast majority of the fairs falling within the same three week window of time!  However, between our staff and students, we do our best to hit as many counties as we can, often sending out two separate groups to visit two separate fairs in the same day.  Our grand total this year is 28 individual fairs, an all-time record for our team!

What do we have to offer when we visit a county fair?  We may bring any combination of the activities shown below:
