New Attraction: Blue Ribbon BINGO

Blue Ribbon BINGO

Have a blue-ribbon blast when BINGO makes its big-time debut at the Minnesota State Fair! BINGO proceeds support the Minnesota State Fair Foundation 501(c)(3), celebrating 20 years in 2022!


Here’s the scoop:

  • Sessions
    • Each Bingo session includes 5 games.
  • Cost
    • BINGO packets are $10 each, cash only. Each packet contains 5 sheets, one for each game; each sheet contains 3 cards to play per game.
  • Note
    • If you begin play mid-session, the cost is still $10.
  • Be loud
    • When you WIN, we really want to hear you yell “BINGO!” After all, you just won BINGO at the State Fair!
  • Prizes
    • Winners receive two admission tickets to their choice of either the 2022 or 2023 State Fair and their very own coveted blue ribbon that will be the envy of family and friends.
  • While you’re here
    • Snap a photo of the Guinness World Record’s Largest Award Ribbon Rosette (we’re not kidding – it’s nearly 7’ across with three 24’ streamers), presented to Marjorie Johnson, prolific State Fair blue ribbon baker, in honor of her 100th birthday in 2019.

BINGO sessions include five games and last about 30 minutes. The first session will begin promptly at 9 a.m. daily; sessions will be held approximately once per hour, with the last session beginning at about 8 p.m. (7 p.m. on Labor Day). Check the sign outside Ramberg Center for session start times throughout the day.
