Although the Minnesota State Fair is still six months away (I want a Pronto Pup now), it's time to get in line and grab your tickets to the highly coveted grandstand shows -- with The Fair today unveiling two more shows for the Great Minnesota Get Together.

Additional grandstand entertainment will be announced in the coming months, but here's where we stand today:

  • Thursday, August 24th:  Nickleback
  • Saturday, August 26th:  Jim Gaffigan <-- OMG, So funny!
  • Tuesday, August 29th:  John Mellencamp

So far so good and if we know the MSF, there will be some country acts coming very soon so stay tuned.

We'll see you at the 2017 Great Minnesota Get-Together -- August 24th through Labor Day, September 4th!
