Fans of the State Fair were excited earlier this week when organizers announced a “Kickoff to Summer at the Fair” event on Memorial Day weekend (May 27-31). The Great Minnesota Get Together was canceled last year due to COVID and fair spokesperson Danielle Dullinger says:

“We definitely are striving to have a fair, we definitely would not say this is replacing the fair in any way, this is basically to have an event because we haven’t had one in quite some time.”
