“Good entertainment, exhibits, and shows outside of fair time.”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

I check for and go to events there often. Parking is fine, depending on the exhibit.

“State fair time is a must!!”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

The MN state fair is fantastic.
Do not rush, experience it like you are visiting a destination.


There is good food available not just greasy food so take time to figure out where the hidden gems of the fair are.
Go to a concert in the evening, you will not be dissapointed

“I LOVE the State Fair! We go almost every year!”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

There is so much to see and do at the State Fair and it is constantly changing. We have enjoyed gathering "free" stuff, looking at cool exhibits, trying new food, gettin away in the oriental bazaar, and much more.
