The Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center

Much of the World Percheron Congress will take place in the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center located at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. This facility is part of a $20 million project that features covered access to the Horse Barn and complements the Fairgrounds’ current livestock facilities, including approximately 1800 stalls, a 19,000 square foot covered arena and the 47,000 square-foot climatized Livestock Pavilion. The new 110,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility will accommodate up to 3,500 spectators in a naturally-lit, multipurpose venue.

The Iowa State Fairgrounds consists of approximately 410 acres, 160 of which encompass a beautiful, wooded campground where camping sites are available. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, many of the buildings on the grounds pre-date World War I!

So, make plans today to attend the 2010 World Percheron Congress in Des Moines, Iowa!
