CONCESSIONS & EXHIBITS - Licensed Participants

The Minnesota State Fair has established a tradition of providing high quality family entertainment that is clean, wholesome and fun, with a commitment to total guest satisfaction.

The PDF documents found on the sidebar of this page are intended to inform you of State Fair policies and procedures and to assist you in completing the necessary steps to prepare for the Minnesota State Fair.

They are meant to foster better fair operations and it is each licensee's responsibility to be familiar with these policies, procedures and rules.

We hope that your experience at the fair is a pleasant one. If you need assistance, please contact our concessions and exhibits staff at (651) 288-4456.
