Check out a list of manifestations, where the art of butter sculpture is celebrated.
The Iowa State Fair celebrated its 100th anniversary this year and remains the one emblematic occasion of butter sculpting, although the tradition has its origins in Tibet, where a mixture of yak butter and dye is used to create sculptures for the New Year.
State Fairs take place traditionally in August or September.
