Minnesota State Fair Named Best Fair In the Country

October 4, 2018

It's official, the Minnesota State Fair is the best fair in the country, and it's nice to get national recognition! The Minnesota State Fair was named "Fair of the Year" at the International Entertainment Buyers Association (IEBA) awards in Nashville on Tuesday.

It was up against the California Mid-State Fair, Delaware State Fair, Great Jones County Fair (Iowa), OC Fair (California), the Pacific National Exhibition (Vancouver) and the Wisconsin State Fair (lol). However, it was The Great Minnesota Get-Together that took home the trophy. As it should after it saw a total attendance of 2,046,533, breaking the 2 million barrier for the first time in its history! 

If you missed it this year, the 2019 Minnesota State Fair begins Aug. 22 and runs through Sep. 2.
