Since 1854, the fair has been a time when we have come together to learn, experience and celebrate. It is one of our most beloved cultural traditions, welcoming all of Minnesota and holding a special place in so many of our hearts, generation after generation. A self-supporting organization, the Minnesota State Fair is enduring and resilient, and the Minnesota State Fair Foundation is here to help the fair weather this storm.
In supporting our mission to preserve and improve State Fair buildings, the fairgrounds and educational programs, you can make an impact that goes far beyond the 12 days of fun and help to make the Great Minnesota Get-Together even greater.
We invite you to become a 2021 Friend of the Fair (with fun State Fair benefits!) Join today to help us unlock a $50,000 challenge reward from the Boards of the Minnesota State Fair and the Minnesota State Fair Foundation!
