Shine On for the Iowa State Fair

Give the gift of light to the Iowa State Fair! The Blue Ribbon Foundation’s “Shine On” program allows you to show your love for the State Fair with a commemorative lamp post.

By purchasing a lamp post, you are providing a gift enjoyed by all Fairgoers while also supporting the renovation and preservation of the Fairgrounds. Lamp posts are available on the Fairgrounds at two different levels:

  • Single globe lamp posts located throughout the Fairgrounds are $750
  • Lamp posts located north of Gate 15 are $500

In recognition of your gift, a personalized plaque with your designated inscription will be placed on your lamp post. March 31 is the deadline to have your personalized plaque placed in time for this year's Iowa State Fair. For more information on specific locations of the lamp posts located throughout the Fairgrounds, please contact Drew.

If you would like to take advantage of this program, please use our secure online order form or download and print the brochure.
