The Minnesota State Fairgrounds are open to pedestrian and bicycle traffic and is accessible from Gate 5 at Snelling Avenue and Midway Parkway (the only gate open for vehicles); from the north end at Larpenteur Avenue; at Hoyt & Snelling avenues; from Gate 14 at Como Avenue and Canfield Street; and from the west at West Dan Patch Avenue. See a map. For the safety of walkers and bikers, if you are driving to the fairgrounds, we ask that you park upon entering Gate 5 and do not drive around the grounds. Please comply with posted parking and traffic signs, including speed limits.
We also ask that your inner “Minnesota Nice” guides you as you use the fairgrounds to walk or bike.
Things to note:
Thank you for respecting other walkers and bikers, the fairgrounds and its buildings and property. If you have questions or comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The fairgrounds will close to the public June 17-20 for the Back to the ’50s car show.
