Minnesota State Fair Amateur Talent Contest

Singing and dancing and instruments, oh my! A variety show for all ages takes center stage at the Leinie Lodge Bandshell Stage! A State Fair favorite for 46 years, the Amateur Talent Contest features top talent, and competitors are competing for more than $20,000 in cash awards and JACK’S® Pizza prize packs. These semifinalists were selected from more than 400 acts who auditioned this summer in one of three divisions: open, teen and preteen. They’re now competing to move onto the finals round in the Grandstand on Sunday, Sept. 2! This can’t miss fun happens nightly Aug. 23-Sept. 1. It’s a State Fair tradition!
