Did you know the first Minnesota State Fair took place in Minneapolis in 1859? 26 years later, in 1885, the Minnesota State Fair found its permanent location in Saint Paul where they’ve been entertaining their fans ever since!

Our 4th annual Minnesota State Fair giveaway is a little different from the past. We’re turning the tables and asking you to send us your throwback fair photos for a chance to win a giveaway package of four (4) admission tickets, one (1) sheet of ride/game tickets and one (1) Blue Ribbon Bargain Book for the Minnesota State Fair.

Any state fair photo will do! It could be you sliding down the Giant Slide, your friends sharing a bag of Tom Thumb Donuts or of a new born piglet in the CHS Miracle of Birth Center — any photo (that is your own) from the past 158 years of state fair fun will be accepted! Limit of one photo entry per person throughout the giveaway. Haven’t been to the fair before? No sweat! We want everyone to have the opportunity to win one of these fabulous prize packages.

The giveaway will begin on July 24, 2017 and will end on August 18, 2017 (the first day of the fair is August 24, 2017). Within this time, upload your throwback photo (below) from the Minnesota State Fair and we will choose four (4) winners throughout the giveaway (winners will be contacted via email).
