Des Moines, IA- The Iowa State Fair Queen Coronation is over, and Henry County’s own Kalayna Durr of New London is 2023’s Iowa State Fair Queen.

Durr was one of 104 women that competed in this year’s Iowa State Fair Queen competition with Taylor Bartholomew of Washington County earning 3rd Runner Up.

Durr was named Henry County Fair Queen nearly a month ago, which included an unprecedented call-back to the stage for a second question after an afternoon full of interviews, formal wear presentations, and onstage interviews.

If you would like to watch the event, Iowa PBS recorded the entire event, and it will premier tomorrow, August 13th, at 1 pm.
