Your personalized brick awaits! Add your story to the fairgrounds today.
Recognition bricks have been a favorite of Foundation donors throughout the years, so successful that our plazas have limited spaces available for new bricks. If you have been thinking about ordering a recognition brick, now is the time! Bricks orders will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis, as we anticipate reaching our limit before the July 1, 2022 deadline.
These 8” x 8” bricks can feature family names, fair memories, logos* and much more and are placed on the east side of the Grandstand in the brick plaza.
Bricks have room for six lines of text with up to 15 characters, including spaces, in each line. We invite business names or logos to be included on the brick.
*Any art including logos may be subject to an additional $50 charge.
