Kelly Hayworth introduced Josh Schamberger who gave an overview of the history of FRYfest. The festival began 7 years ago to celebrate “All That Is Hawkeye”, recognize Coach Hayden Fry and kickoff the University of Iowa Football season. It was in 1985 when Hayden Fry introduced ANF, and on September 4th FRYfest will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Amercia Needs Farmers, the day before the UI Hawkeyes take on Illinois State in Kinnick Stadium.
Allie Boenish provided a comprehensive schedule of events. The festival is held in the Exhibit Hall at the Coralville Marriott in Iowa River Landing. The FRYfest Blood Drive, organized by UI DeGowin Blood Center, kicks off the celebration at 9:00 a.m. and the event culminates with a performance by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts at 8:30 p.m. It’s a full day of activities with special guests, panel discussions, BAGGO tournament, beverage garden, Governor Branstad’s proclamation of “Hayden Fry Day”, a visit from the new UI President, a pep rally with the entire UI marching band and the outdoor concert with The Rumours an all-female rock band from Waterloo followed by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.
