The Minnesota Historical Society is preparing for the kickoff of the Minnesota State Fair next week. Here’s where visitors can find MNHS every day of the fair starting Thursday.

It's state fair time here in Minnesota, and it's going to be a busy week there leading up to Labor Day. The fair runs next Thursday, August 24th, through September 4th. Each year shatters attendance records, and more cool things are added to the fairgrounds.

This year the Minnesota Historical Society has some big attractions each day that you totally need to check out.

  • Each day at 9:30am and 10:30am - Enjoy performances of History-on-a-Schtick in the Schilling Amphitheater in the West End Market.
  • Each day, all day - Grab a free Minnesota State Fair Walking Tour brochure and discover the history of this over 150-year-old state institution. This year venture to two new stops, the Swine Barn and the Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum. Visit eight or more stops to receive a prize at the MNHS booth in the Education Building or the History & Heritage Center in the West End Market.
  • Each day, all day - At the MNHS booth in the Education Building, find out about upcoming exhibits and programs, take your picture with their postcard photo op, and learn about revitalization plans for Historic Fort Snelling ahead of its bicentennial in 2020.

Minnesota history is fascinating, and that's what MNHS is all about. Have fun at the Minnesota State Fair and we can't wait to see you there!
