(St. Paul, MN) — It seems that one of the state’s biggest events is back on this year. Minnesota State Fair General Manager Jerry Hammer said “planning is proceeding” for the 2021 event, as he believes there are “plenty of reasons for optimism.” The plan is to hold familiar festivities from August 26th to September 6th on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, which has been used as a vaccination site recently. Officials say the cancellation of last year’s fair resulted in an operating loss of over 16-million dollars.
