The Minnesota State Fair Foundation was created to preserve and improve Minnesota State Fair buildings, 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.

The Minnesota State Fair Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
