Access Minnesota

14 August 2013

Preview of the 2013 Minnesota State Fair

For the week of August 18th, 2013

It’s an end of summer tradition that’s older than the state of Minnesota itself. It began as an agricultural exposition, and has evolved into a 12-day extravaganza of arts, education, music, merchandise and Midway rides. Over a million attendees pass through its gates each year. And did I mention that it also offers almost any food you can imagine on a stick? On this week’s Access Minnesota, a preview of the 2013 Great Minnesota Get Together, the State Fair!

  • Guest: Brienna Schuette, Marketing & Communications Manager at Minnesota State Fair
  • Issues: A look at last year’s fair; New foods, music and attractions for 2013; Working at the fair; Best ways to get to the fair; How families can save money; 4H events and activities; How new booths and vendors are chosen
