America's Wackiest State Fair Contests

Forget song and dance. America’s most entertaining talents are on display at these crazy state fair contests.

OuthouseRaces, Iowa State Fair

10 of 11

This wildly popular contest takes potty humor to a new level. Teams of four build outhouses and get decked out in their finest goggles and boots. They race 200 feet down a straightaway to a toilet where the “driver” cleans a chocolate smear sans hands (i.e., with his rear). After that, he digs through a cattle trough to find a corncob, changes a roll of toilet paper, jumps back into the outhouse, and is pushed back to the finish line. And the reward? The Golden Throne, a toilet seat inscribed, “We’re #1 in the #2 Business.” Second- and third-place teams win silver and bronze plungers.

Where: Des Moines, IA

When: mid-August
