Block by Block

The donor wall in the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center is a way to put your support for the Iowa State Fair on display.

The donor wall is inspired by the barn quilts that hang on the exterior of the Exhibition Center, which represent Iowa’s heritage and strength in agriculture. Just as the structure was built block by block, this unique, decorative wall is a symbol of how individual contributions like yours help piece together projects to make Fairgrounds renovations possible!

Six different levels of giving are available for the donor wall of the Jacobson Exhibition Center. With each incremental donation level, the plaques increase in size and allow for a more personalized inscription.

  • $100: Name and City/State
  • $500: Name and City/State
  • $1,000: Name and City/State plus 1 additional line
  • $2,500: Name and City/State plus 1 additional line
  • $5,000: Name and City/State plus 2 additional lines
  • $10,000: Name and City/State plus 2 additional lines

The deadline to have your donor wall plaque placed for the Iowa State Fair is June 1. To take advantage of this program, please use our secure online order form or download and print the brochure.
