Halfway to the Fair Happy Hour Fundraiser

Picture yourself walking down Grand Avenue.  You can feel the warm sunshine on your face. You hear music playing, children laughing, and animal noises coming from the barns. Your mouth starts to water as you inhale the unmistakable aroma of your favorite food-on-a-stick. Sound great?  Stop imagining and join the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation as we fast-forward to August!

The Blue Ribbon Foundation is celebrating Iowa’s favorite summertime tradition six months early at the Halfway to the Fair Happy Hour Fundraiser. Make plans to join us on Friday, February 8th in the Elwell Family Food Center on the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
