With the canceled 2020 Minnesota State Fair originally scheduled to start tomorrow, Minnesotans are mourning the loss of good eats, people watching, and all the attractions of the Great Minnesota Get Together.

There's good news for Miranda Lambert & Tim McGraw fans who were looking forward to seeing the country music superstars on the State Fair grandstand this summer -- both artists have been rescheduled for 2021.

Miranda Lambert was supposed to open the 2020 festivities tomorrow night, but has been rescheduled for opening night next year on August 26th.

Tim McGraw with special guest Midland was set to take the stage this year on Tuesday, September 1st -- but that's not to be. Instead, both acts will hit the grandstand on Wednesday, September 1st, 2021.

You can get tickets for both of the big nights on the 2021 Minnesota State Fair grandstand HERE.

The 2021 Minnesota State Fair is set for August 26 through Labor Day; September 6, 2021.

Many of us just can't let go of the fact that the Great Minnesota Get Together is done for this year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. The good news? There's still plenty of fair fun that you can get in on.

The Minnesota State Fair 'Food Parade' is going on through September 7th, but that's where the good news ends on that. The event is sold out, with no plans to add additional dates.

The Minnesota State Fair Online Marketplace is alive and well for all who enjoy all the shopping available at the Fair. You can shut 275 of the 2020 State Fair vendors HERE.

Minnesota State Fair merchandise is available for purchase. Need a t-shirt, Party-in-a Box, or Crop Art Kit? (And of course you do.) Get it all HERE.

We can't sugar-coat it, a year without the State Fair sucks. Let's all get and stay healthy so one fair is all we have to miss.
