Express your love for the Indiana State Fair. Become a Friend of the Fair today!

Your gift to the Indiana State Fair Foundation’s annual giving program, Friends of the Fair, supports the continued growth of agriculture education programs, youth development initiatives and the preservation of this treasured Indiana institution.  Your generosity ensures that future generations of Hoosiers will share in the time-honored tradition of the Indiana State Fair, and create lasting memories for another 160 years.

Donations to the annual giving program will underwrite fieldtrips for thousands of Indiana students throughout the year and fund the nearly $100,000 in awards presented to 4-H youth at the annual Celebration of Champions.  Additionally, Friends of the Fair gifts are used to preserve and enhance the Fairgrounds aging facilities and infrastructure.

The Indiana State Fair Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity established in 2011 to support the year-round agriculture education, youth development, and campus stewardship of the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center for the benefit of all citizens of Indiana.
