Drake Day at the Iowa State Fair will take place on Saturday, Aug. 13. The free festivities will occur from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Drake University tent on Rock Island Avenue just east of the Anne and Bill Riley Stage.
Three first-class Yamaha Artists in Education will perform a piano concert series at Drake in celebration of the University’s Keys to Excellence campaign — an initiative to replace 68 well-used campus pianos.
Drake's mission is to provide an exceptional learning environment that prepares students for meaningful personal lives, professional accomplishments, and responsible global citizenship. The Drake experience is distinguished by collaborative learning among students, faculty, and staff and by the integration of the liberal arts and sciences with professional preparation.
