The Minnesota State Fair Foundation's nonprofit mission is to preserve and improve State Fair buildings, the fairgrounds, and educational programs.

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.

Our priorities are to raise funds in the following areas: agriculturearts and cultureeducation, fairgrounds environment, and history and heritage.
