Each year the Iowa State Fair hosts more than 45 competitions testing the talent, creativity and sheer zaniness of our Fairgoers.
Concrete Statue Contest
Use your artistic talent to show why the Iowa State Fair is special to you, your family, or your organization. If selected, your statue will be on display at the 2016 Iowa State Fair.
Individuals, clubs and companies are invited to participate by simply completing the application with your proposed paint design. Selected applicants will then pick-up the statue from the concrete manufacturer (created in johnston), paint it, and return the statue to the fairgrounds to be displayed during the Iowa State Fair, August 11-21, 2016. Following the Fair, the statue is yours to keep.
