When the Iowa State Fair wraps up, Fairgoers start patiently waiting. The Blue Ribbon Foundation knows winter can be the hardest part of the wait. Once you flip the calendar, February is 6 months until the best celebration of the summer. That’s only 182 days until you get to eat your favorite food-on-a-stick and join in the beloved traditions. Stop counting down the days and join the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation as we fast-forward to August!

The Blue Ribbon Foundation is hosting the 2nd annual Halfway to the Fair Happy Hour Fundraiser on Friday, February 7 in the Elwell Family Food Center on the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Attendees will enjoy live music from the Dueling Pianos of Andy Anderson & Mike Leeds, eat Fair-inspired appetizers and help support future Iowa State Fairgrounds improvements benefitting you and your family.
