I attend various other events at this location besides the most common (The State Fair). From Craft shows, motorcycle, old cars, etc. Parking at times can be challenging.

We spend more time here during State Fair than any other but the grounds are used throughout the year for a variety of events. Year after year the State Fair Grounds are improved and modernized. It is a fun place to take the entire family!

Always crowded and busy. Bring your patience, wallet, and walking shoes! All you can drink milk is a must, if you get Sweet Martha's cookies. RC brand pop is the least expensive.

You can get to University and Snelling on the light rail and then take a bus to the Snelling Avenue entrance of the Fairgrounds. During the Fair, the bus runs VERY often.
