Most people will say their favorite part of the Great Indiana State fair is the food or the midway, but truly there is so much more to the fair…there’s the Hoosier Spirit. The Habitat for Humanity Home located on the north side is a showcase of the heart and soul of the fair. For the fourth straight year, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis is partnering with Indiana Agriculture sponsors to construct an entire three-bedroom house at the State Fair in 14 days!
Working alongside 27 sponsors and more than 350 volunteers, future homeowner Joseph Olumullah will help build his first home.
Construction of this Habitat home will continue all 14 days of the fair with hundreds of volunteers from local companies and organizations will be rolling up their sleeves to meet the demanding construction schedule. Fairgoers will be able to tour the home and a home dedication will take place on Aug. 16.
