The 30th year of the Iowa Rabbit Festival will be next Friday and Saturday March 18th and 19th with new scenery.  The festival after 29 years have moved the festival to Lake Charles and inside the Burton Coliseum.

The past few years, the festival has been riddled with bad weather causing the turn out to be poor.  The festival's mission is to raise money for youth and civic organizations in the Iowa area.

This years line up is second to none. Friday night, Wayne Toups will headline the night and on Saturday country music star Frank Foster will perform live!  Here is the official lineup for the festival:
