SoyFest: A Celebration of Soy

Iowa State University SoyFest 2021

Date & Time: August 25, 2021 | 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Location: Iowa State University Central Campus


Due to many uncertainties resulting from the Covid-19 Pandemic, SoyFest has been moved to Wednesday, August 25, 2021. Be sure to save the date!

August is soybean month in Iowa and because soybeans are a big part of Iowa’s economy (accounting for over $5 billion annually), the Iowa Soybean Research Center is hosting this fun and educational experience on all things soy for our 33,000+ students at Iowa State University during the first week of fall semester classes. This one-day, festival-style event will be held on central campus near Parks Library to show how products containing soybeans have become part of everyday life and the many uses of soy.

Join in the fun!

Food: Free cookout - pork, poultry, veggie/soy burgers, popcorn, donuts...more
