Building for the Future

Support the Iowa State Fair and leave your legacy with an engraved paver or seat plaque at the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center.

The Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center represents the future of the Iowa State Fairgrounds. The facility was built to accommodate a variety of different events. From the beautiful barn quilts displayed on the massive brick exterior to the overall functionality of the building, the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center is a true landmark for the state of Iowa.

The western approach to the facility will soon be marked by a timeless granite pathway. Leave your personal legacy on an engraved 8" x 8" granite paver for $500. To purchase a granite paver, please use our secure online order form or download and print the brochure.

Another opportunity for Fair-goers to permanently display their Fair connection is with an engraved seat plaque. A number of seats will be available to place a personally inscribed plaque on the back of a seat, at a cost of $250 each. (Purchasing a seat plaque does not reserve the seat for events.) To purchase a seat plaque, please use our secure online order form or download and print the brochure.

The deadline to have your granite paver or seat plaque placed for the year’s Iowa State Fair is March 31.
