Hall of Fame


Since 1978 the Central Iowa Fairboard has presented a Hall of Fame award to an individual(s) who has contributed extensively in someway to the Central Iowa Fair and or the fairboard/fairgrounds. These individuals have all went above and beyond to help support the fair and the board in various ways. Whether it be helping with the county fair, working with youth or extension, serving on the board, being a director and share holder, working on fundraising projects, helping with the race track or working with renovations. We proudly solute these individuals and thank them for their support.
