Thank you for all you do to support the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation. The Fair is Iowa’s greatest celebration with a salute to the best in agriculture, industry, entertainment and achievement. What sets the Iowa State Fair apart from other events? The incredible agricultural education opportunities.

During each Iowa State Fair, roughly 3,000 4-H and FFA students exhibit their livestock in the cattle, horse, poultry, sheep, and swine barns. Approximately 30,000 children interactively learn about farming at the Little Hands on the Farm exhibit. With almost 600 babies born in the Animal Learning Center each year, families of all ages experience the miracle of life.

Teaching our youth the value of agriculture in Iowa is important; it’s our history and future. The 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. The Fairgrounds prides itself on offering excellent facilities that showcase all things agriculture.

Please join the Blue Ribbon Foundation’s mission to renovate and preserve the historic Iowa State Fairgrounds. Your investment will ensure the barns, arenas, buildings and exhibit space across the Fairgrounds stay in top-notch condition. Please consider making a donation today.
