I would personally like to thank whoever was in charge of bringing a sensory-friendly event for our children to enjoy at the Minnesota State Fair. Everyone should be able to experience the fair in a way that makes them feel comfortable and welcome. The Sensory Friendly morning will take place on Monday, August 28th, and will feature lowered sound volumes and light brightness for those with sensitivities.


Now this is my kind of golf! For just $10 per person, you and your family can enjoy this 9-hole mini-golf course, that features famous state fair landmarks like DNR Park, The Space Tower, The Haunted House, Giant Slide, and more.

There are a lot more things that are new this year, including updates to the ever-popular 'Oink Booth,' a redeveloped entry experience at Gate 9, two new Kidway rides and much more.  To learn more, click HERE now.
