Overnight Livestock Parking Information

All information is subject to change. To get the latest State Fair competition news in your inbox, join our email list.

Overnight Parking is located on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in the Livestock Lots A, B or D (located to the west of the livestock and horse barns). Livestock and horse exhibitors who wish to park their camping and RV units on the fairgrounds during the State Fair must complete an overnight livestock parking reservation request.

Online reservation requests for livestock exhibitors:

The overnight livestock parking reservation request system closed May 28, 2024. No more requests are being accepted.

All requests made between 8 a.m. and 11:59 a.m. on May 28, were put into a computer-generated lottery and filled in that order. Anyone who successfully completed a request in the first four hours had an equal chance in securing a camping spot. Requests made at noon or later were filled or wait-listed in the order in which they were date- and time-stamped by the online process.

Email notification of the status of all requests were sent June 13, 2024. Full payment is due for confirmed requests by July 12, 2024. Any confirmed spaces not paid for by July 12 will be reallocated to the next appropriate request. This document provides step-by-step instructions on how to submit your payment.

Submit Payment

The overnight parking online form is now part of the overall Minnesota State Fair competition registration system. Login using the email and password associated with your approved reservation. If you don’t know your password, you can reset it.
