Each year, the concrete statues are a popular favorite with their unique designs and pops of color. The Iowa State Fair is inviting individuals, clubs and companies to participate by completing the application form with a proposed design. Past sculptures have included an elephant, pig, cow, horse, ice cream cone, Ferris wheel, state of Iowa, Iowa State Fair logo, blue ribbon and camper.
The 2022 statue is a concrete barn. Forms are due by May 15, 2022.
