We thank you, Minnesota, for making the 2013 State Fair so memorable! For twelve days of fun we welcomed more than 1,731,000 people. Please check back later for updated information on next year's Great Minnesota Get-Together. Hope to see you at the 2014 State Fair, to be held Aug. 21-Labor Day, Sept. 1!
