The Dubuque County Fair Association (DCFA) is a non-profit organization established in 1953, to plan and operate the Annual Dubuque County Fair. The Association has grown immensely in 66 years and the DCFA now offers visitors 96 acres of acutely manicured property, 3 rental facilities with a combined square footage of over 32,000 square feet of indoor space, adequate parking for thousands of cars, a 3/8 mile dirt race track, an outdoor Festival Area, experienced event planners and full service food and beverage amenities.

Every year the Dubuque County Fair Association strives to improve our grounds, buildings, and our infrastructure. Even in the year of this pandemic we were able to completely upgrade our restrooms in the Grand Ballroom with some help of our great sponsors and donations from this great community.

Now, Modern Woodman of America has offered to assist us in our next project, to replace our banquet tables and chairs in our Grand Ballroom. Modern Woodman of America has offered to match donations for this project, dollar to dollar up to $2,500. Please help us raise this money by October 26, 2020 with a tax-free donation to the Friends of the Fair Foundation. A gift of any size will be greatly appreciated. You can either send a check to the Friends of the Fair, 14569 Old Highway Road, Dubuque, IA 52002. Call in to our office at 563-588-1406 or go to and make a donation online.

A huge thank you to Modern Woodman of America for their generous donation and to all the great Friends of the Fair for your kindness and willingness to help the Dubuque County Fair Association preserve our 67-year-old history.
