New Attraction: Gate 9 on Como Avenue – Redeveloped

Gate 9 on Como Avenue – Redeveloped

Fair guests who enter the Great Minnesota Get-Together on the south side will experience a new welcoming Gate 9 area – wider, more accessible entrance and exit gates; expanded bike lot; added sidewalks; spacious wheelchair, scooter and stroller rental area; iconic OnlyInMN photo op; and benches and art sculptures.


  • The popular free bike lot formerly located at Snelling and Como avenues will move west to the Gate 9 area and become larger to accommodate more bikes.
  • The State Fairgrounds Ticket Office will continue to sell tickets at this gate area.
  • Gate 9 will continue to be the south drop-off and pick-up stop for Metro Mobility, taxis and the free Oscar Johnson Arena Park & Ride lot exclusively for those with valid disability parking certificates or license plates and their companions.
  • The plaza area just inside Gate 9 will be the future home of a unique and stunning public art installation to recognize donors and greet fair guests. Stay tuned for details in the coming months. Support provided by the Minnesota State Fair Foundation.


Located on Como Avenue, just east of the Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum
