What To Know About ThJacobson Exhibition Center

In 2024, The U.S. Finals: Des Moines heads to the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center in Des Moines, Iowa, a property that opened in August 2010 and has become synonymous with the Iowa State Fair. It replaced the West Arena, which previously stood in the same location.

The multi-purpose facility has been used for livestock shows, concerts, sporting events, entertainment, and many activities related to the state fair. Iowa businessman Richard O. Jacobson provided the first $3.5 million for the $20 million project.

Approximately 3,500 spectators can sit around the 32,000-square-foot arena floor. There’s also a warm-up arena and a second warm-up arena with a livestock fence.
