Iowa State Fair






As an official sponsor of the Iowa State Fair, your organization will have a tailored opportunity to interact with more than one million people! Since 1886, the Iowa State Fair has been a source of family entertainment. Livestock competitions, concerts, thrill rides, food, hundreds of exhibits and displays and so much more bring crowds to the Iowa State Fairgrounds for the most fun-filled eleven days in August.

Engaging in a sponsorship at the 2022 Iowa State Fair is a partnership between your organization, the Fair and more than one million annual attendees. We are committed to a positive and memorable experience for all parties. When considering a sponsorship opportunity with the Iowa State Fair, imagine the experience you want to create and the impression you want Fairgoers to remember.

While some sponsors seek on-site exhibit space to engage with the fairgoers, other sponsors seek branding and logo placement. Others prefer to support a special event, attraction or Fair time contest. Still others seek to create a unique experience for Fairgoers.

Whatever your goals, we will help you meet them. As an Iowa State Fair sponsor, you have the opportunity to directly interact with Fairgoers and share your product, service or message. Whatever your need or objective, we can help you sell, sample or promote your business or message.

Start planning your Fair presence by reviewing the 2022 Sponsorship Brochure and 2021 Post-Fair Sponsorship Report.

Can’t be at the Fair all 11 days? Two opportunities are available for exhibitors who prefer to join us for just one or two day days during the 11-day run of the Fair:

For an outdoor booth space opportunity, please review the 2022 Mobile Marketing Brochure.

NEW for 2022! Do you prefer a day or two in an indoor air-conditioned booth space? Why not test your brand in the 110,400 square foot Varied Industries Building. Review the 2022 Shared 10’x10’ VIB Booth Proposal and contact us for available dates.

If a single day on the Fairgrounds in a prime location serves your goals, then take a look at the 2022 Day of Fair Sponsorship Proposal.

For sponsorships with an agricultural focus, check out the 2022 Ag-Focused Sponsorship Proposal.

Event analytics are available here: Iowa State Fair Analytics Summary.

Every Iowa State Fair sponsorship is unique and can be customized to meet your goals. If you are interested in a sponsorship opportunity for the 2022 Iowa State Fair, please contact us at your earliest convenience.

We look forward to helping you plan a successful Iowa State Fair sponsorship.
