Corndog Kickoff Patrons

Help us celebrate 22 years of the Corndog Kickoff by becoming an official Kickoff Patron! There are 7 patron levels to choose from, depending on your donation and benefits you would like to receive.

As a patron, you will receive admission tickets and recognition in event publicity materials. Best of Show, Grand Champion, Champion, Purple Ribbon, and Blue Ribbon levels also receive reserved seating and priority entrance to the Kickoff. Our Patrons help make the Corndog Kickoff possible, which in turn helps raise funds for the Iowa State Fair!
