Simpson Headed to the Fair

Make way, butter cow, corn dogs and pork chops on a stick.

Simpson College is headed to the Iowa State Fair!

For the first time in recent memory, Simpson will sponsor a booth in the Varied Industries Building. The idea is to have fun and promote the college at the same time.

You will find us near the south entrance of the Varied Industries Building, near DMACC. Our space will feature a digital photo booth, in which fairgoers can have their picture taken and then be adorned – digitally, of course – in a Simpson shirt, pennant or other props.

Simpson College at the State Fair

Did you have a chance to stop by Simpson College's booth in the Varied Industries Building at the 2013 Iowa State Fair?

If not, check out the video to the right to experience our booth at this year's fair.


Children will be invited to wear a temporary Simpson tattoo, and we’ll also be giving away mini-Frisbees.

College employees are volunteering to staff the booth, and they can’t wait to see you and spread the great news about Simpson.

Please plan to visit us during the fair, from Aug. 8 to Aug. 18. Just look for the coolest booth in the Varied Industries Building. And plan on having fun!
