The following information applied to the 2017 fair. We'll update 2018 details in the spring and summer!

Hand wash stations are available at many entrances to buildings in the livestock areas, including AgStar Arena, Cattle Barn, Cattle Annex, Sheep & Poultry Barn, Swine Barn and the CHS Miracle of Birth Center. Hand wash stations are also located in the Food Building. These stations are noted with a “W” on the State Fair map.

We invite guests to enjoy time with the animals, but highly recommend washing or sanitizing hands before and after visits and especially prior to eating.
