Media Credentials Request

Welcome to our friends in the media! We can't wait to share everything about the 2022 Fair with you.

Here are a few details:

A limited number of tickets and parking passes are available for the media. Everyone will be required to have media credentials to work in the media office during the Fair. We have separated cubicles and a limited number of tables spaced out.

The Iowa State Fairgrounds will be closed for set up starting on Saturday, August 6, 2022. If you need access to the grounds between August 6-10, 2022, please request pre-fair passes on the credentials request form. Pre-fair passes are only valid until August 10, 2022. Anyone entering the gates will be required to have an admission ticket or an 11-day wristband August 11-21, 2022.

You will receive a confirmation email if your request is approved. Media credentials information, admission, and parking passes will be shipped in late July, please double and triple check your mailing address allowing time for delivery by August 1, 2022. The deadline to apply for media credentials is July 22, 2022.

As we approach the Fair, we will communicate any relevant information by email.

Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.
