Fair Receives Alliant Energy Foundation’s Community Grant


With the help of the Alliant Energy Foundation’s Community Grants Program The Linn County Fair Association has been able to purchase a new stage for the Farm Bureau Free Entertainment Tent. The stage purchased is safer and easier to assemble then the current fair stage. The new stage will provide a safer experience for all performers and crew during the fair. The grant was made through the Alliant Energy Foundation’s Community Grants Program. The Foundation awards community grants to specific projects benefiting the community in the areas of arts, education, environment, and human and civic needs.

“We are pleased to be able to assist with The Linn County Fair’s new entertainment venue,” said Julie Bauer, Alliant Energy Foundation Executive Director. “The new stage and equipment will enhance the Fair’s shows for all to enjoy.”
