The Iowa State Fair attracts more than a million visitors each year and is consistently named one of the best state fairs in the country, but up until now I've never had the desire to check it out.

Did you know you can actually camp at the Iowa State Fair? I'm seriously considering reserving a spot because there are several awesome concerts taking place between August 8th-18th down in Des Moines.They have something something for everyone with big name acts nearly every night. See the schedule below.

  • The Chainsmokers on August 9th
  • Slipnot on August 10th
  • Zac Brown Band on August 11th
  • Dan & Shay on August 13th
  • Comedian Gabriel Iglesias on August 14th
  • Luke Bryan on August 16th
  • Hootie & the Blowfish on August 18th
