All-State Barn Tour (17th annual), Sept 23 & 24, 2017

The statewide Iowa Barn Foundation's All-State Barn Tour is the most important event on our tour calendar, typically held on a weekend in September.

Important and historic barns throughout Iowa are opened to the public during the two-day, self-guided All-State Barn Tours. The self-guided annual tours, which attract visitors from around the country, are free and open to the public.

The barns on the tour have received either matching grants, or an Award of Distinction Award of Distinction icon, from the Iowa Barn Foundation.

More About our Barn Tours

During these free tours, tour maps are available at each barn.  At many barns, 4-H members sell lemonade and cookies.  Other barns have special displays and presentations.  In addition, visitors have the opportunity to join the Iowa Barn Foundation if they are not already a member.

The barns on tour are typical of Iowa barns that have served farmers well.  These restored barns illustrate how barns can be brought back to their original glory.

Some of the barns were featured in Iowa Public Television's Saving Iowa's Barns.  Others have been featured in newspapers such as the Des Moines Register and Iowa Farmer Today.  See links to some of these on our Museums & Barns page.
