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.

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 opens May 28, 2024, at 8 a.m. The reservation request system will close May 28, 2024, at midnight, and no more requests will be accepted after that time.

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

It is critical that accurate, measured dimensions are included in the reservation request; please do NOT provide estimated numbers.

EXACT dimensions of camping unit with slide-outs fully extended and including hitch, spare tire, rear or front carrier, in feet and inches are required. The three dimensions include:

  • length including tow vehicle (if applicable)
  • length excluding tow vehicle
  • width

Email notification of the status of all requests will be sent after 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.

For further information, please contact the competition department at competition@mnstatefair.org or 651-288-4417.
