BECOME AN IOWA STATE FAIR SPONSOR
As an official sponsor of the Iowa State Fair, your organization has a tailored opportunity to interact with more than one million people! Since 1854, the Fair has been a source of family entertainment and a critical piece of Iowa’s rich history – a true reflection of the state’s culture, industries, and quality of life. Engaging in a sponsorship at the 2023 Fair is a partnership between your organization, the Fair, and Fairgoers who come to enjoy the 11 most fun-filled days of the year. We are committed to a positive, successful, and memorable experience for all parties.
When considering a sponsorship with the Fair, imagine the experience you want to create and the impression you want to leave with Fairgoers. Some sponsors seek on-site exhibit space to share their product, service, or message and directly engage with Fairgoers. Others seek signage and logo placement to increase brand awareness and affinity. Still others prefer to support a special event, attraction, or Fairtime contest or even create a unique experience for Fairgoers to enjoy.
Whatever your goals, we will help you meet them.
Start planning your presence at the 2023 Fair by reviewing the 2023 Sponsorship Brochure and the 2022 Post-Fair Sponsorship Report.
Interested in on-site exhibit space? Can’t be at the Fair all 11 days? Please check out the following options:
• Mobile Marketing Brochure – for shorter activations (fewer than 11 days) in an outdoor space.
• Shared 10’x10’ VIB Booth Proposal – for one or two day activations in the air-conditioned, 110,400 square foot Varied Industries Building.
• Day of Fair Sponsorship Proposal – for a single day in a prime location on the Grand Concourse. (Availability varies but typically opens late winter/early spring if the previous year’s Day of Fair sponsor do not renew.)
• For other, 11-day space options or unique requests, please contact the Sponsorship Director below.
For sponsorships with an agricultural focus, check out the Ag-Focused Sponsorship Proposal.
For sponsorships of Fairtime events or attractions, check out the Special Events and Attractions Proposal.
