Foodways Friday

apple fritters fry over open fire


Friday, August 18
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Foodways Fridays showcase typical cooking techniques, ingredients, and food culture of the past! Each Friday from 10am to 12pm, historic sites at Living History Farms will explore a differing food theme through demonstrations and displays. Sites and theme topics vary from week to week June 9 through August 25. Food trivia and recipes will be available to take home!

Thank you to Hy-Vee for their support of our Foodways Fridays program.


August 18, Fried Food: It’s State Fair time! That time when every Iowa fair goer indulgences their fried food desire. Stop in at the 1900 Farm for a look at making home fried apple dumplings on a wood stove or visit the Tangen House to see how doughnuts were a Victorian obsession!
