Be a Sponsor

Our corporate sponsors help us continue the tradition of making the Missouri State Fair one of Missouri’s best summer getaways. Together, we create a win-win event for our partners.

Heightened Communication

With State Fair sponsorship, you will be speaking with your audience, not at them. Your message is woven directly into the action, reaching consumers while they are engaged in fun-filled activities.

Instead of a perfunctory 30-second spot, you have 11 days to convey your message!

Full Promotional Rights

The Missouri State Fair’s high-impact name and logo can be used in your advertising and branding efforts. Being a part of the Missouri State Fair statewide marketing campaign is a signal of your commitment to a fun-filled, family-oriented event for your consumers.

Turn-Key Partnership

The Missouri State Fair has a full-time professional staff committed to helping our partners achieve maximum return on investment from their sponsorship. We will coordinate programs to ensure success and provide thorough documentation promptly after the Fair’s conclusion to help you evaluate the experience.

Impactful Entertainment

Spend quality time with your key constituents – customers, retailers, employees, etc. – in a high-prestige environment. The Fair is uniquely suited for employees and clients who respond positively to invitations that include their spouses, children or grandchildren. Once here, our group program for sponsor guests creates heightened excitement and ensures a memorable entertainment experience. Your sponsorship can include benefits like these:

  • Complimentary use of the VIP Hospitality Tent
  • Concert and event tickets
  • Admission and parking passes
  • An exclusive thank you gift
