WFYI at the Indiana State Fair

WFYI at the Indiana State Fair

This year, WFYI will be at the fair every day, Aug. 4 – 20, and we want to meet up with you!

Stop by the WFYI area on Main Street across from the Indiana Farmers Coliseum to meet our staff, check out some great stage shows or take a photo as your favorite NPR host. We’ll have a bunch of fun stuff to give away, and anyone who becomes a member may receive a cool new item like a shirt, mug or beach towel.

Over the course of 17 days, we’ll be educating thousands of fair-goers on the programs, initiatives and mission of public media. We’ll also be taking your input on community issues you would like to see us report on more.

Among the many exhibits and performers you’ll be able to see at the WFYI stage are:
