WCCO Radio At The State Fair

August 23, 2018 - 4:35 pm

We made it. 

Another Minnesota State Fair is almost in the books, with the end officially coming when the fireworks go off following the grandstand show.

This year's fair has already been a record-breaker, with five all-time highs for daily attendance.

That includes Saturday's 270,426, the largest one-day crowd in the history of the Great Minnesota Get-Together, which dates back to 1859.

Sunday appeared to be another banner day, with people still lining up to buy admission tickets well after dark.

It appears likely the 2018 fair will surpass 2 million in attendance, which has never happened before.

Last year drew the state fair's all-time high of 1,997,320.

The Texas State Fair is still the most-attended in the US, but, as Minnesotans like to point out, the fair in Texas lasts 24 days, twice as long as what we have here.

Come see us at the Minnesota State Fair on Carnes Avenue, on the same block as Ye Old Mill and next door to Sweet Martha's Cookies!
