"Pork Expo" Des Moines Things to Do Tip by omega108

Des Moines Things to Do: 34 reviews and 33 photos

Iowa is one of the largest producers of pork and shares an Expo alternating years with Illinois. If you like pork take a trip to the State Fair grounds (on the east side of the city) and pay about $8 for all you can eat pork ALL DAY LONG. Normally for me its a definite once a year trip where I gorge myself on the fatted hog. If you happen to be interested in agriculture there are a large number of exhibits for pork producers.

Directions: State Fair Grounds
