The Big Tent on the Prairie

  • Alluviul Brewing Company 3715 West 190th Street Ames, IA, 50014 United States (map)

We are proud to announce  our keynote speaker will be Michael Blake! He is a rising star of the Democratic Party.  A son of Jamaican immigrants, he currently serves as the New York Assemblyman for the Bronx. He is also a newly elected Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee.

All the currently known Democratic gubernatorial candidates or potential candidates have been invited to speak. We have confirmed Andy McGuire, Jon Neiderbach, Jackie Norris to represent John Norris, and Todd Prichard.  Nate Boulton and Mike Matson send their regrets and are unable to attend.  Cathy Glasson and Fred Hubbell are checking their schedules.

Light refreshments and beverages will be served. Alluvial Brewing Company will have additional beverages available for purchase. Musical entertainment will be provided by Ben Schrag & The Cautionaries. This is a family friendly event with activities for the children.

There is no cost to attend though this is a shared fundraiser with Boone, Hamilton and  Hardin  counties and  the ISU Democrats. Donations will be accepted at the door or a secure donation may be made here-
