Would you like to see your smiling face in the pages of a State Fair publication? How about the faces of your friends or kids?

Send us a black and white or color photo (or slide) that captures the fun of the Minnesota State Fair*. If we use it to promote the fair, we’ll send you a State Fair Family Passport consisting of four gate admission tickets, a sheet of ride tickets for the Mighty Midway or Kidway, and other State Fair surprises. And, when space allows, we’ll even print your name in the photo credit.

Send your photos or slides any time of the year with your name, address and phone number on the back of each to:

Minnesota State Fair
1265 North Snelling Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55108-3099

or email a high resolution image (300 dpi if possible, saved as a jpg) any time of the year with your name, street address and phone number in the message area of your email to:

If snail-mailing your photo, remember to keep a copy of your hot shots as they become the property of the Minnesota State Fair and will not be returned.

Helpful Hint: Your photo has a better chance to be selected if there is something in the shot that clearly identifies the Minnesota State Fair.

*Photos from any Minnesota State Fair welcome, 1859 through 2014!
