Media Credentials Request Form
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 8, 2021. If you need access to the grounds between August 8-11, 2021, please request pre-fair passes on the credentials request form. Pre-fair passes are only valid until August 11, 2021. Anyone entering the gates will be required to have an admission ticket or an 11-day wristband August 12-22, 2021.
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, 2021. The deadline to apply for media credentials is July 23, 2021.
As we approach the Fair, we will communicate any relevant COVID precautions by email and they will also be posted on our website safety page: https://www.iowastatefair.org/safety.
