Groups arriving at the State Fair by bus may use the University of Minnesota Transitway to avoid traffic and park in a designated lot for free!
Drivers should enter the Transitway off Energy Park Drive, just east of Highway 280. Charter buses will enter the fairgrounds at the Transitway entrance and turn right off the Transitway onto West Dan Patch Avenue, then turn left onto Randall Avenue. Follow the charter bus signs along Randall Avenue until you see the charter bus parking sign with a right turn arrow into the parking lot between the Robin and Fox lots. A parking lot attendant will direct you to the parking area. Guests will enter the fairgrounds through Randall Avenue (Gate #18). See a map.
