Governor’s Steer Show
at the Iowa State Fair
Since its inception in 1983, the Governor’s Charity Steer Show has generated over $3.5 million (equivalent to over 270,000 nights stays) in support of Iowa’s three Ronald McDonald House chapters. During that same time, nearly 48,000 Iowa families have been served. Additionally, another 8,000 families coming from all 50 states and more than 60 foreign countries have used the Iowa facilities. During the competition, celebrities will lead 25 steers around the ring, vying for the championship designation, showmanship honors, and the People’s Choice award. Then, the steers will be sold at auction with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa, including RMHC of Siouxland, as well as the House in Des Moines, and Iowa City. Both the show ring event and the auction are open to the general public. This year’s show is August 15th at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
