The ticket price includes admission to the event, and one meal ticket. Parking is free but you might have to walk a little.
Yup you can’t get in the event without a copy of the ticket. So print it out and give them to each person in your party!
The Wing Ding is always looking for volunteers to help, and you get to attend for free! Also we release a video of the event the day after, and outside the venue there are plenty of great things to do!
The ticket price is a donation to the county party you purchase from, and taking back a donation isn’t usually a thing we allow. But things happen and we understand that so if you need to refund your donation just get a hold of us and we will see what we can do.
Nope. All tickets are general admission and seating is first come first served. While you may find reserved spaces at the event those are for speakers and staff.
Come as you are! We are not a fancy dress up event. Think of the Wing Ding as more of a political tail gate.
A bit of patience and a good attitude. And some money… it’s a fundraiser after all!
It’s usually super hot in August in Iowa, and sometimes we have to wait outside while security does it’s thing. So bring some water if it’s warm, and if you have issues standing outside for any period of time let us know so we can make arrangements.
We have a form for that. You have to meet the requirements for our press policy to be issued a press pass, but if you do then click here and fill out the form.
Most years we do put out the riser for broadcast cameras only. Photographers, campaign staff, independent film, are generally not allowed on the riser. The riser is reserved locations and space is limited.
That’s up to you, and the campaign staff. We do not arrange interviews but we will be glad to help you find space to conduct your interview if we can. Most years we have a mobile studio available for use upon request.
The Iowa Democratic Wing Ding is a joint fundraiser and is operated by the Iowa Democratic Wing Ding Committee in association with several Democratic County Parties of Iowa.
