The 2020  State Convention is traveling across the state to the banks of the Missouri River in Sioux City. After a 8 year break, the Diocese of Sioux City and the hundreds of Knights and their families are looking forward to providing three days of spiritual growth, fraternal rejuvenation, and quality training and support.

The State Convention encompasses a number of special events, including an exemplification of the Patriotic Degree, the Annual Meeting of the Fourth Degree District, the presentation of the annual awards for council programming and Individual merit, and the annual meeting of the Iowa State Council.

There are many activities for the wives and kids to keep them quite busy throughout the weekend. All events are very affordable in an effort to have as many of our KofC families with young kids able to join in our celebration.

We hope you discover the excitement that is the State Convention, and look forward to seeing you in Sioux City!
