As an official sponsor of the 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, or just to people watch, the crowds gather on the Iowa State Fairgrounds for the most fun-filled eleven days in August. 

If you are interested in a sponsorship opportunity for the 2018 Iowa State Fair we would love to hear from you. Please review the 2018 Sponsorship Brochure and the 2017  Sponsorship Report to help you plan for your level of participation. Mobile Marketing may be an option that appeals to your organization rather than a full 11-day duration of the Fair presence. Iowa State Fair sponsorships are unique and customizable, see below for further details.
