Spirit of Generosity

The traditions of the Iowa State Fair are deeply rooted in the spirit of Iowa. From showcasing the best in agriculture, providing world-class entertainment and bringing people together in celebration - the Iowa State Fair inspires hard work, creativity, leadership and pride.

The “Spirit of Generosity” giving program is designed to honor the character and generous spirit of Iowans.

Located in the west atrium of the Bruce L. Rastetter 4-H Exhibits Building, the “Spirit of Generosity” panel is a representation of Iowa, demonstrating how independent pieces come together to create our great state and its Fair. The Blue Ribbon Foundation invites you to support our mission to renovate and preserve the Iowa State Fairgrounds, keeping it a place where future generations can showcase their talents.

With six suggested giving levels starting at $100, each donation will be recognized on the panel. The deadline to have your donor wall plaque placed for the Iowa State Fair is March 31. To take advantage of this program, please use our online order form or download and print the brochure.
