Event Planned During Time Iowa State Fair Would've Been Happening

DES MOINES, Iowa - There's no Iowa State Fair this year, but there is a Des Moines event planned for what would have been the fair's first weekend.

The Iowa Craft Beer Tent is planning an event called the Butter Cow Festival--August 14th and 15th-- at Lauridsen Amphitheater in Water Works Park. Organizers say they'll have local breweries and some State Fair food vendors and local bands, spaced according to social distancing guidelines.

Everyone attending will be required to wear a face covering. Organizers are also selling 15 foot square boxes on the grounds that can seat eight people. Ticket holders will be allowed to leave the box, but the box will be the ticket holder's personal space. Organizers say they'll have more information soon.

A portion of proceeds will benefit the Des Moines Water Works Park Foundation and the State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation.
