32nd Annual Harkin Steak Fry

Senator Harkin’s Steak Fry is always one of the most highly anticipated, time-honored Iowa political traditions. Every year thousands of Iowans gather in Tom’s home county, and this year we are pleased to announce Senator Al Franken as the special guest!

Please join us at the Warren County Fairgrounds in Indianola, Iowa on Sunday, September 13, 2009.

The Steak Fry will be from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Gates open at 12:30 p.m. (Warren County Fairgrounds are located 1 mile west of the intersection of Highways 65/69 and 92)

Some of our coverage from 2007:

September 2007 – sun and a band and 12,000 other people.

This won’t be quite the same as 2003 or 2007 – presidential campaign years – but Senator Al Franken (D-Minnesota) is the featured speaker. That alone will be worth the four and a half hour drive.
