Iowa's largest free fair - free admission, parking, and entertainment!
Did you knjow... Mutton busting was first introduced at the Daines Ranch Pro Rodeo in Canada in the early 1960s. They wanted an event that would keep the younger kids from riding the rougher stock, so they put some of the family sheep into the bucking chutes and the rest is history. Now, it's a local fair favorite year
