Celebrate Iowa Gala
The Celebrate Iowa Gala is an evening filled with arts, music, history, cuisine, cocktails and desserts from around the state held in December.
Lt. Governor Adam Gregg, Astronaut Peggy Whitson and more than 560 guests helped celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Iowa Arts Council and the 160th anniversary of the State Historical Society of Iowa at the Celebrate Iowa Gala on December 8, 2017.
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, partners and attendees, this year’s event generated more than $120,000, to help produce exhibits and educational programs at the State Historical Museum of Iowa and across the state.
Funds raised support exhibits, programs and initiatives of the State Historical Society of Iowa and the State Historical Museum of Iowa. See some of what we've accomplished with your support.
