We are committed to delivering on your 2020 Friend of the Fair benefits. Here are answers to important questions regarding the cancellation of the 2020 fair and 2020 Friends of the Fair memberships:
I had a 2020 Friend of the Fair membership; will I get my benefits?
First, thank you! We truly appreciate that you chose to donate to the Minnesota State Fair Foundation as a Friend of the Fair in this historic year.
After the cancellation of the 2020 Minnesota State Fair, a survey was emailed to all of our 2020 Friends of the Fair with two options for benefit redemption:
- Receive your 2020 Friends of the Fair benefits with minor adjustments. These benefits were mailed in August 2020 with the exception of admission tickets which will be sent in August 2021.
- Waive your 2020 Friends of the Fair benefits so the full amount of your membership supported the Foundation and State Fair during this time. The amount associated with the waived benefits became tax deductible to you.
If we did not hear from you, we provided the benefits described above with the exception of the admission tickets which will be mailed in August 2021. Please feel free to call us with any questions at 651-288-4325.
I was a 2020 Friend of the Fair and renewed for 2021, now what?
Thank you for continuing your support of the Minnesota State Fair through the Foundation! You will receive the remainder of your 2020 membership benefits (if applicable) plus your 2021 membership benefits in the fall of 2021.
- The State Fair admission tickets that came with your 2020 membership will be sent to you in August 2021 and honored at the 2021 State Fair (2020 Yellow Ribbon memberships and above)
- You will receive your 2021 Friends of the Fair benefits as planned:
- 2021 Friends of the Fair Ribbon
- The choice between the 2021 Annual Friends of the Fair Pin or Blue Ribbon Bargain Book
- 20% discount code to the State FairWear shops during the fair
- 2021 State Fair admission tickets will be sent to you in August 2021 (Yellow Ribbon memberships and above)
- Friends of the Fair presale access for the 2021 Grandstand Concert Series Shows (Red Ribbon memberships and above)
Thank you again for being a 2020 Friend of the Fair, even during a historic year with no Minnesota State Fair. With your support, we can help the Fair weather this storm.
