What to Expect at the State Fair

This Minnesotan tradition that has become the signal for the end of summer actually began as a territorial fair in 1854 to highlight agricultural achievement and encourage other farming in the area. It wasn’t until 1859, a year after Minnesota was granted statehood, that it officially became the Minnesota State Fair where it grew its legacy as one of the most popular attractions in the area. The State Fair continues to showcase Minnesota’s finest agriculture, art and industry. 

If you’re in the St. Cloud area, the 2021 Minnesota State Fair runs from August 26 to Labor Day on September 6. Be sure to check out the Minnesota State Fair FAQ for accessibility and admission informations, but here’s an idea of what to expect at the State Fair:
