Welcome to the Fair!
The Minnesota State Fair is about more than corn dogs, mini-donuts and Midway rides. It has a grand tradition and history of its own, much of which has been recounted in books by local authors Karel Ann Marling ("Blue Ribbon") and Kathryn Koutsky ("Minnesota State Fair"), both of which are available at Hennepin County Library.
