Homemakers @ the Iowa State Fair

Iowa State Fair booth

We hope you’re as excited for the 2021 Iowa State Fair as we are – it’s going to be a big one! If you haven’t heard, Homemakers is this year’s Iowa State Fair Grandstand sponsor. What does that mean for you? Lots of chances to win prizes, giveaways, and score huge discounts on some of our top-selling pieces at this year’s Fair!

Why We're a Sponsor

Homemakers was founded in 1974 in St. Paul, Iowa, before later moving to the Des Moines area. As an Iowa founded business with almost 50 years of legacy, we’re proud to be the largest furniture store in the state. Sponsoring the Iowa State Fair is our opportunity to give back to the communities and the state that have supported our business for so long.

We were all disappointed to see the Fair cancelled in 2020, which makes us even more excited to be a part of its triumphant return this year!

William C. Knapp Varied Industries Building Booth

Come see us at booth #465 in the William C. Knapp Varied Industries Building! With the second largest booth in the building, there’s plenty to check out. Shop trending products, enter to win big prizes, and score freebies!

Behind-the-Scenes Look

Setting up a booth at the Fair is a lot of work – especially when you have large furniture to haul! Our team started the prep work months ago. See behind-the-scenes of our Fair booth!

Waiting to figure out the ideal setup until the Fair arrives would be a recipe for disaster, so our team created a mock booth in one of our warehouses to make sure we get it right. First, they measured out the dimensions of the booth space, including the height of the walls and signage.

Then, it was time to start laying out all the furniture we want to put on display. Figuring out the ideal setup is a long process, but worth the work to ensure the best presentation, come Fair time!

After that, it was time to get on the road and transport everything over to the Fair! A special shout out to our incredible warehouse team that makes this all possible.

With the furniture in place, our booth practically looks like a miniature version of our showroom floor!
