Warren County Fair Receives International Recognition

12/09/2016

December 9, 2016 – Indianola, Iowa – The Warren County Fair of Indianola, Iowa has received an Award of Distinction for Competitive Exhibits in the Display Method and/or Prop Category from the International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE).

There are 14 award categories for Competitive Exhibits, each divided into 5 divisions by attendance, that a Fair or Expo can enter. The entries are evaluated and judged by a team of industry leaders. These individuals are selected from the membership of International Association of Fairs and Expositions, which has over 1,200 members from around the globe.

“The Warren County Fair should take great pride in being selected for this prestigious award,” said Rebekah Lee, Director of Communications for the IAFE.

The Warren County Fair’s entry featured a new display case that is used to highlight the winning open class culinary exhibits during the fair. The display case was custom-designed by volunteers after receiving a donation of two large windows from Renewal by Andersen.

“The Warren County Fair has many things to be proud of,” said Fair Manager Jo Reynolds. “This award reminds us how many things we have to be thankful for – especially the sponsors, volunteers and exhibitors who make the fair possible.”

The awards were presented during the General Session on November 29, 2016, at the 126th annual IAFE Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. The purpose of Competitive Exhibits awards is to encourage fair members to share methods, ideas, props, new or unique classes and fair themes, which enhance or expand competitive exhibit areas.

The IAFE, based in Springfield, Missouri, is a voluntary, nonprofit corporation, serving state, provincial, regional, and county agricultural fairs, shows, exhibitions, and expositions.

The Warren County Fair is an annual celebration with deep roots. Held in Indianola, Iowa, the fair combines youth and open class exhibits with delicious fair food, carnival rides, music and grandstand events for an annual event that is “kind of a big deal!” Come join the fun July 26-31, 2017.
