Celebrate Iowa Gala
Each year, the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs hosts the Celebrate Iowa Gala to support statewide efforts to preserve and share Iowa history for generations to come. Proceeds from the gala support the State Historical Society of Iowa’s exhibits and programs, funded by the Iowa Historical Foundation, a 501(c)(3).
The 2020 gala might look a little different. But this year, especially, we encourage you to make a tax-deductible donation to support the department’s mission to build culturally vibrant communities by connecting Iowans to the people, places and points of pride that define our state. Iowa’s art, music, film and history help us feel connected, even when we’re apart.
