Dear Friends of the Poweshiek County Fair,
With 2014 having come to an end the Poweshiek County Fairboard has already started planning for 2015. The
fairboard works hard to provide an admission free fair for the residents of Poweshiek County. This gives area
youth and their families an outlet for summer fun that is educational, entertaining and economical. The county
fair showcases the 4H and FFA youth of Poweshiek County reminding everyone of the talent, resources,
products and cultural heritage that is abundant in Poweshiek County.
In 2012 the fairboard implemented a sponsor program called “Friends of the Fair” to help provide funds to
organize events as well as manage and maintain the fairground facilities. The complexities of the service we
deliver are not always evident to the general public, but there is a great deal of activity that goes on at the
fairgrounds year round. The fairboard has the responsibility to make important decisions for the long term
viability of the fairgrounds. The sponsor program created for the fairgrounds will help to continue to maintain
and update the facilities for the annual Poweshiek County 4H/FFA Fair. It also ensures that the facilities are
available for other events held throughout the year.
Many of you already sponsor awards such as plaques and banners that are given to the youth that exhibit at the
fair. You may also help sponsor the family friendly entertainment that is provided for fair goers each year.
Those sponsorships are totally separate from the Friends of the Fair program. It is our wish that you will
continue that support. Local business support is essential to make the county fair feasible.
Friends of the Fair sponsorship is a 3 year commitment with various levels of participation that you can choose
from. The enclosed form explains these levels and what recognition is included at each level. The board wants
to ensure that everyone is fully informed while making their donation decisions. You are welcome to call the
fairgrounds office at 641 236-7959 with your questions. At no time will there be any pressure for you to
We thank you for your consideration to be a part of this tax deductible Poweshiek County Fair sponsorship
program. Sponsor participation is vital to continuing the tradition of excellence at the Poweshiek County Fair.
It is our hope you will choose to be a part of this tradition.
