Iowa State Fair
2013 IHPA State Fair Bid Sheet (coming soon)
The Iowa State Fair is one of the great summer attractions in Iowa. It is also one of the biggest events for the Iowa Honey Producers Association. Located in the Agricultural Building, the IHPA booth is a site to see! Here you can buy great tasting Iowa honey, beeswax candles, honeycomb, and a variety of other honeybee products. And be sure to check out our Honey Lemonade stand. It tastes so good on those hot August afternoons.
But that's only half the story. There is also an extensive beekeeping display. This exhibit is part of the judged competition for the Iowa State Fair. Beekeepers from across Iowa submit their prized honey, beeswax, honeycomb, and beekeeping pictures for the competition.
What kind of beekeeping exhibit would be complete without some actual honeybees? That's right. There are display cases with actual honeybees in them. You can watch as they all go about their daily business. You may even be able to see the Queen bee!
The Iowa State Fair offers many wonderful attractions, and the IHPA exhibit is certainly one of the best. Dates for the Iowa State Fair are in August. You can get more information at their website at IowaStateFair.org
