General Manager Jerry Hammer contends, despite a significant drop in the number of visitors since record-breaking 2019, the Minnesota State Fair did well under the circumstances.  Hammer says more than raw attendance numbers…

Hammer notes despite the pandemic, the Minnesota State Fair was still one of the largest events in North America:

“What we’re looking forward to in ’22 is a true return to normalcy.”
