North End Campaign

Building New Memories at the North End

The North End development is the centerpiece of the State Fair’s newest neighborhood. Featuring a major new exhibit facility with a 12,000-square-foot exhibit hall, the North End will be the fair-time home to annually changing museum-quality exhibits, educational and entertainment opportunities. The North End will also have features that recognize Minnesota innovations in agriculture, industry and the arts, along with uniquely Minnesota attractions, food and commercial exhibits.

“It’s been nearly half a century since a whole new neighborhood was developed at the State Fair. We’re excited about this great new addition to the historic State Fairgrounds, and also about the lasting impact that this will have for future generations of fairgoers.” -Jerry Hammer, State Fair general manager.

We invite you to be a part of this bold undertaking, which will define a new destination on the fairgrounds! To donate to the North End Campaign, click the button below.
