What began in 1854 as a territorial fair to highlight agriculture and encourage farming in the region became the Minnesota State Fair in 1859, a year after Minnesota was granted statehood.
Today, often referred to as the “Great Minnesota Get-Together,” the annual Minnesota State Fair is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region.
This end-of-summer tradition is held the 12 days leading up to and through Labor Day. The 2024 Minnesota State Fair runs Aug. 22-Labor Day, Sept. 2.
