Indiana State Fair announces 2019 theme


To pay tribute to the heroism of everyday Hoosiers, the Indiana State Fair announced that its 2019 theme is “Heroes in the Heartland.”

Throughout the 17-day event, slated for Aug. 2 through Aug. 18, the Indiana State Fair will salute Hoosier farmers, first responders, educators, members of the Armed Forces, and many others who keep us safe and make us proud. The fair will celebrate our nurturers, protectors, guardians, and guides. Additionally, each day during the fair, Super Heroes featured in box office movies will be highlighted.

“We’re proud to honor individuals whose exceptional commitment and caring enrich our lives,” said Cindy Hoye, executive director, Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center, in a media release. “The Indiana State Fair is uniquely positioned to offer connections and experiences that recognize and celebrate our state’s Heroes in the Heartland.”

As part of the fair’s theme activation, Hoosiers are encouraged to visit www.indianastatefair.com to honor their personal heroes. The State Fair will include these stories in their 2019 fair campaign, “Who’s Your Hero?” 

Advanced discount tickets are now on sale online and at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum box office.

The Indiana State Fair is the state’s largest multi-day event celebrating Hoosiers’ spirit and agricultural heritage. The fair has been an annual attraction for generations of Hoosiers since 1852.
