About Minnesota State Fair

The Minnesota State Fair is one of the largest and best-attended expositions in North America, attracting two million visitors annually.

What began in 1854 as a territorial fair to highlight agriculture and encourage farming in the region became the Minnesota State Fair in 1859, a year after Minnesota was granted statehood.

In addition to being a showcase for Minnesota's finest agriculture, art and industry, the fair features hundreds of entertainment options including music all around the fairgrounds; educational exhibits; hands-on experiences; more than 60 carnival rides; thousands of competitions; 11 nights of Grandstand shows; and more than 500 different foods.

This end-of-summer tradition is held the 12 days leading up to and through Labor Day.

Located mid-way between Minneapolis and St. Paul, the 322-acre Minnesota State Fairgrounds is renowned for its beautiful gardens and architecture reflecting the art deco and Works Progress Administration eras.
