Keeping educational programs at the forefront
Learning is a passion of the Minnesota State Fair Foundation, we hope you can relate!
Foundation donors support the overriding purpose of the Minnesota State Fair as expressed in the 1911 Agricultural Society creed:
The 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.
We are all lifelong learners and the State Fair gives us plenty of learning opportunities throughout the fairgrounds.
