Celebrate IPTV’s 50th Anniversary at the Iowa State Fair

Iowa Public Television’s 50th anniversary celebrations continue at this year’s Iowa State Fair. Visitors to IPTV’s booth in the Varied Industries Building will find an engaging exhibit with familiar faces, giveaways and fun for the whole family.

Fans will enjoy IPTV’s brand new anniversary exhibit, remembering favorite programs and characters from decades past, as well as today’s can’t-miss series. Visitors will also get a sneak peek at what’s coming soon to IPTV.

Each day of the fair, KIDS Clubhouse Adventures co-hosts Dan Wardell and Abby Brown will be available for hugs and high fives at the IPTV booth between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Fans can also take selfies with life size images of Julia Child, Red Green, Rick Steves, Big Bird, Clifford and dozens more.

In addition to enjoying the Varied Industries Building’s air conditioning, fairgoers can beat the heat with IPTV’s free fan giveaways. Between special anniversary-themed fans and KIDS Clubhouse Adventures “Flat Danbot” fans, visitors of all ages are sure to have fun staying cool at the fair.

IPTV will also continue its 49-year-old tradition of bringing state fair highlights statewide. This year’s programming begins August 7 with a live broadcast of the 2019 Iowa State Fair Parade, continues August 12-18 with Fair 2019 and the State Fair Talent Championship 2019.
