During the State Fair, if you are driving to the fairgrounds, you can drop off and pick up guests at the Loop Gate on Como Avenue (#9), O33 on the State Fair map; here there is a small circle to pull up and load/unload passengers. Cars cannot wait here for more than a couple minutes to pick up passengers.
App-based ride services (such as Uber and Lyft) have two designated drop-off and pick-up points:
• On the northeast end of the fairgrounds near Snelling & Hoyt (Gate 2 at 1806 Hoyt Ave.) See a State Fair map.
• Outside the northwest end of the fairgrounds (University of Minnesota St. Paul Campus CECC turnaround at 1890 Buford Ave.)
