The Minnesota State Fair Foundation preserves and improves the historic Minnesota State Fairgrounds, and supports State Fair agricultural, scientific and educational experiences.
Based on the historic 1911 Agricultural Society creed, the Foundation believes that
the Minnesota State Fair is:
a mirror of Minnesota greatness, a school for her citizens, and a place where all are welcome, entertained and experience the results of the best thought and effort in all lines of endeavor.
State Fair Story
"When it comes to creating and exchanging memorable stories, the Minnesota State Fair is one great stage where the stories and experiences positively change lives. This is where, with an almost 150-year history, there are millions of stories from young, old, rural and urban that are told or re-told every year.”
