DES MOINES, Iowa — This year, the Iowa State Fair will be joined by headliners.

State Fair announced on Facebook that Johnny Carson would be joining Butter Cow. Carson was born in Corning and had a long, successful career in radio and television. He is best known as the host of the Tonight Show from 1962 to 1992.


Current Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon will also appear, along with Des Moines native Steve Higgins. Higgins is currently the announcer for the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The glider seat will be carved from butter to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Main Glider.
