The Minnesota State Fair is the ideal platform to reach two million potential customers in only 12 days (more than 166,000 per day in 2017). Affectionately known as the Great Minnesota Get-Together, the fair’s ever-growing and loyal fan base is what makes this exhibition the “must-stop” destination for sponsors and mobile marketing units promoting across the country. Surveys reveal that a whopping 85% of guests visit the fair every year and an additional 12% visit every other year or every five years. The 2018 fair will run Thursday, Aug. 23 through Monday, Labor Day, Sept. 3.
