At the American Royal, Governors are both members and individual donors. The Governors Program is an annual membership, and a great way to connect with the Kansas City community while impacting the future of agriculture. As a Governor, you'll enjoy benefits throughout the year including advance notification of American Royal news and developments, an exclusive season ticket package, networking and volunteer opportunities, and much more. Additionally, by being a Governor, you are directly supporting American Royal scholarships and education programs, which provide over 100 scholarships and reach over 16,000 students annually.
Packages are available for individuals, families, young professionals and even kids. Become a Governor: impact the future of agriculture and join the excitement and fun at the American Royal!
Don’t forget to wear your Governor Pin this season. Please wear it on your left side, over your heart, to symbolize your love for the American Royal.
Governor weekend wristbands (tickets) and parking hang tags will be mailed via USPS on August 29.
