Buy a Brick

Help restore a century of memories by investing in an engraved brick at the Iowa State Fair. A brick is the perfect way to leave a permanent legacy while supporting the renovation and preservation of the majestic State Fairgrounds.

The bricks are used to complete the walkways of 15 different locations: 4-H Exhibit Building, Anne & Bill Riley Stage, Campgrounds Gate Five, Maytag Family Theatres, Elwell Family Food Center, Administration Building, Agriculture Building, Dairy Parlor, Livestock Show Pavilion, Pioneer Hall, Ye Old Mill, and the Cattle, Horse, Sheep and Swine Barns.

You choose the inscription and location of your personalized brick:

  • Standard bricks are available for $100. Inscription allows for up to three lines using a maximum of 14 spaces per line.
  • Special logo bricks are available for $125. Please enclose or email a black and white copy of your business or personal logo with your order form.
  • Gift cards are also available upon request.

Bricks are placed twice a year; once in the summer and once in the fall. Below are the deadlines for placing a brick:

  • Before the State Fair: March 31
  • Fall: September 15
