Minnesota State Fair is ‘full speed ahead,’ general manager says
Hammer said at this time, fair officials do not expect any daily attendance limits given statewide restrictions on large gatherings have eased.
Proof of vaccination will not be required for visitors, staff or state fair vendors, fair officials said. Additionally, masks will not be required but will be encouraged for those who are not fully vaccinated.
Fair security is expected to be provided by the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office, according to Hammer.
Pre-fair discount admission tickets, on sale through Aug. 25 for all ages, are $13.
Admission at the gate for adults age 13-64 is $16; kids 5-12 and seniors 65+ will be admitted for $14; children 4 years old and under are able to enter for free.
Pre-fair tickets will be available online.
“It was a big challenge just keeping our operation intact, but we’re all so glad we did, and now we can see it just coming back in so many positive ways,” Hammer said. ”There’s nothing like the fair, we had visitors from all 50 states and 33 nations from around the world last time we held the fair. It’s so important to so many people, so to be able to do it again is just outstanding news and we can’t wait for August.”
Additional announcements on fair entertainment, new foods, and the full Grandstand lineup, among other topics, will be made in the coming weeks, fair officials stated.
