Iowa State Fair

The internationally-acclaimed Iowa State Fair is the single largest event in the state of Iowa and one of the oldest and largest agricultural and industrial expositions in the country.

Annually attracting more than a million people from all over the world, the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines is Iowa's great celebration, a salute to the state's best in agriculture, industry, entertainment and achievement. From the livestock judging to the games on the Midway, from the Grandstand concerts to the famous "foods on a stick," there's something for everyone. It is the true heartbeat of the Midwest, unequaled and unduplicated.

There are always lots of great apparel designs and styles the Blue Ribbon Foundation wants to make available for Fairgoers. Unfortunately we do not have the space in our booths to carry everything we think is cool! But now, we are excited to announce a solution.

Starting Monday, July 8, you can order a wide array of apparel through a dedicated online store. Select the great designs you’d like to wear to the Iowa State Fair, place your order and get your purchase delivered to your home. The website will remain open for orders through August 31, 2019. Designs and styles featured on the website will not be available in our booths at the Fair.
