Event Description

Since the first event in 1997, the Corndog Kickoff has raised more than $6.2 million to assist in the goal of preserving the beautiful Iowa State Fairgrounds. Come celebrate the wackiest contests the State Fair has to offer and “Let the Competition Begin” at the 23rd annual Corndog Kickoff Benefit Auction and Fair Food Grazing Party on Saturday, July 13. Not only will you be able to sample all of your favorite foods, take home a complimentary photo, enjoy fireworks, and ride on the Sky Glider, but you will also have the opportunity to bid on a variety of top-notch live and silent auction packages. This year's lineup includes: Four tickets and backstage passes to meet Toby Keith with special guest Jimmie Allen, a three-night stay in the beautiful California wine country, an opportunity to have a prime camping spot in a Winnebago RV for the duration of the fair, the opportunity to join a panel of celebrity judges to get the very first bite of 2019’s new fair foods, and so much more!
