Hit the Midway
No fair experience is complete without a trip to the Midway, and Minnesota’s Fair has one of the best. With over 20 different rides and attractions, everyone will have something that they want to do. Check out the full list of rides HERE!
Timberworks Lumberjack Show
While we aren’t 100% what’s always going on, nothing beats watching people chop wood very quickly. This lumberjack decathlon includes single buck saw, obstacle pole, logroll, hot saw, speed climb and more. This exciting competition takes place at 12:00 pm, 3:00 pm, 5:30 pm, 7:00 pm every day of the Fair, so there’s no excuse to miss it!
