Experience an evening filled with arts, music, history, cuisine, cocktails and desserts from around the state. Meet famous Iowans in our Living Wax Museum, sample Iowa's Best Burger of 2017 and beer from Iowa breweries, and listen to live music from Annalibera, the Damani Phillips Trio and the Parranderos Latin Combo.
Guest of Honor
Over the course of three missions aboard the International Space Station, Iowa native and NASA Astronaut Peggy Whitson made U.S. history this summer by logging a record 665 days in space. Next month, she will return to her home state to be the guest of honor at the sixth annual Celebrate Iowa Gala. Help us celebrate her extraordinary milestone along with the 50th anniversary of the Iowa Arts Council and the 160th anniversary of the State Historical Society of Iowa during an evening filled with art, music, history, cuisine, cocktails and desserts from around the state.
Your ticket to the 6th Annual Celebrate Iowa Gala includes food, desserts, wine, beer, soda and signature cocktails from across Iowa (a cash bar will be available for mixed drinks). Tickets can be purchased online through December 6. After December 6, tickets may be purchased at the door.
