The Great Minnesota get together will cost a little more in 2019 and the State Fair has also announced a new $16 million exhibition center.

The State fair will be happening August 22nd - September 2nd (Labor Day), which means we're a little over 200 days away! That being said, there will be an increase in ticket prices. General admission tickets will go up by $1 to $15 for adults ages 12-64 and $13 for kids ages 5-12 and seniors. However, you could save some money and get the pre-fair discount tickets for $11 right here.

There will also be a new investment coming to the fair grounds, in the shape of an exhibition complex that will be located at the North End of the grounds. The complex will be 12,000-square-feet and sit next to The Hangar, which was a new addition last year. Outside the new exhibition hall, will be a new plaza and pavilions for food, retailers, and other attractions.
