Is there handicap accessible parking available during the fair?
There are many designated handicap accessible parking locations throughout the fairgrounds. Please enter the main entrance to the fairgrounds on Highway 92. This entrance will have a barricade across the driveway, as it is not open to the public. A public safety officer will check your handicap permit and direct you to a parking spot. The Fairgrounds Map
shows the various handicap parking locations throughout the fairgrounds.
We will also be having a courtesy golf cart shuttle from the parking lot to any area on the fairgrounds for those needing assistance to & from different areas. Please call the office @ 515-961-6687 to arrange a shuttle.
There is also a wheelchair available in the office during the fair.
Are pets allowed?
During the Fair, the only animals allowed on grounds are those that align with the ADA's service animal classification for animals specifically trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Animals whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and are therefore not allowed on grounds during the Fair.
Is smoking allowed on the Fairgrounds?
In accordance with the Smokefree Air Act, portions of the Fairgrounds are smoke-free. While smoking is allowed in the walkway areas of the Fairgrounds, the law applies to sections designated by no-smoking signs. In those areas, smoking of any kind is prohibited (including use of e-cigarettes). Smoke-free areas of the Fairgrounds include:
o Outdoor entertainment venues – stage areas, tents and grounds attraction areas.
o Grandstand area.
o Inside all buildings.
